Call Extension: Call for Documentary Project: We Choose Each Other has been extended to Tuesday, 25 January 2022

We've been through resistance from our relatives; we've been through resistance from our societies After all of that damage, we still chose each other - Siyabonga Ngcobo, South African Vlogger

The National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF) would like to invite TIER 1 and 2 filmmakers ONLY, to submit proposals for a feature length documentary film that celebrates Queer Love.

The call seeks to award funding to the value of R1 000,000 (1 Million Rand Only) for the production of one feature length documentary in keeping with the theme of We Choose Each Other .

Background:

Cinema acts as [a] mirror to society. It has the power to say what is acceptable, what is right, how we should behave, who we are allowed to love. Seeing two women kiss on a forty-foot screen, without being punished or tortured for that fact, that's something that I never had growing up, which is why I fight so hard to have those images up there. Samantha Lee, Filipino Filmmaker.

As highlighted in the above statement, cinema is a mirror to society. It is therefore one of the strongest mediums through which to celebrate Queer Love in all its forms and in so doing fulfil one of the objectives of the NFVF which is to promote social cohesion and the expression of the nation's stories through film.
