We are running an international contest with festivals held in Megacities to support the making of short documentaries raising awareness about urban challenges and solutions.
By 2050, over 70% of the world population will be urban dwellers, dragging an increasing number of social, economic and environmental challenges. We believe that in tackling those issues, Megacitizens should be central in inspiring meaningful and concrete solutions to our decision makers.
Through the support in the production of shortdocs and their broadcasting - both online and during festivals - MEGACITIES SHORTDOCS gives a voice to the community of Megacitizens to help them shape the city of tomorrow.
We engage with universities, companies and local institutions in an effort to support co-creation in the development of solutions for the future of our megacities. The MEGACITIES SHORTDOCS international contest will be featured at Local Festivals around the world and close every year at the Grand Festival in Paris.
Applications for 2016 edition are now open to 11 megacities:
New York, Mexico, São Paulo, Paris, Cairo, Moscow, Delhi, Manila, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo.
