The activism platform Liceulice (Face of the street) has announced a competition for short videos and films about the problems of marginalized people in Serbia, Macedonia, Kosovo and Bosnia and Hercegovina.
“If you need to share a story about marginalized groups, whether you are one of them or want to be part of social activism in an art form, you are just the person for this,” the competition call says.
The work can be done by an individual or a group. It should be no more than five minutes in length, and recorded on nonprofessional equipment such as a mobile phone or amateur camera.
New works are encouraged, but videos or films made within the past five years are also eligible.
Project executive Nikoleta Kosovac says her organization has much more planned.
“This competition is only the beginning of Liceulice's activities,” she says. “We want to inform as many young people as we can that we have initiated a regional platform, and get them involved in building a better society.”
Kosovac adds that the goal of this project is to sensitize and motivate not just young people, but a wide spectrum of of professionals, activists, artists and institutions.
“We want them better to understand the key aspects of marginalization, and to participate in alleviating this problem,” she says.
The winner of the competition will receive a video camcorder.
Producers of the most interesting pieces will be invited to a film workshop, and have their work featured in Liceulice’s magazine and website. The best works will also be part of an exhibition presented in the cities throughout the region.
Deadline for applications is July 30. The winner will be announced on August 15.

It may be a transit zone for truck drivers right now but Savamala was once the beating heart of Belgrade - and will be once again if a group of artists have their way.
