Submissions Deadline: 3rd of May 2013
We are pleased to announce Document 11, 16–20 October 2013, Glasgow, Scotland.
Over the past decade, the Document Festival has built its reputation by screening films which critically engage with the world we live in at the start of the 21st century: stories at once personal and universal in significance, by emerging and established filmmakers from every country and culture.
We seek to show work which explores the idea of human rights in its broadest definition and in a wide range of styles, from reportage to cinematic essays, from investigative journalism to experimental forms.
Document 11 will screen documentary films old and new, from home and abroad, addressing issues such as:
- immigration & asylum
- war & conflict
- LGBT rights
- miscarriages of justice
- social exclusion
- workers/unemployed rights
- mental health & social care
- young people
- human trafficking
- indigenous cultures
- environmental concerns
- global policies & local consequences …
Document 11 welcomes applications from documentary filmmakers to participate in the only UK-based festival dedicated to international human rights.
