Videocamp is a platform that gathers social impact films, making them available for free public screenings. The 2nd VIDEOCAMP Film Fund is among the largest of its kind in the world. The winning project will receive up to US$400,000 (four hundred thousand dollars) to produce a movie on Inclusive Education.
They are seeking a curious and sensitive director with the creative vision to make an important film that breaks down barriers related to attitudes, pedagogy, architecture, or communication. This film is also sensitive to interpersonal relationships that emphasize diversity, as well as collaborative strategies and inclusive support networks. Finally, this is a film that will broaden social perceptions about how all students, with and without disabilities, benefit from an education that is founded upon inclusive citizenship, and which fosters community through a commitment to diversity.
People with disabilities are consistently rendered invisible and excluded from participation in daily activities. In order to change this reality, we must look beyond the disabilities themselves and focus on interpersonal interactions, as well as physical environments. Expanding access involves breaking down barriers, seeing others as unique (without reducing them to their disability or to other characteristics), developing relationships that value diversity, promoting collaboration, and strengthening inclusive support networks.
