5th Conference of the Regulating for Decent Work Network

International Labour Organization

Call for documentaries

At the 4th Regulating for Decent Work Conference in 2015, the conference incorporated an art event with an exhibition of the photographs of Bangladeshi photographer, Ismail Ferdous. 

This year’s conference aims to feature a documentary film that addresses the theme(s) of the conference (please read the call-for-abstracts page).  One film will be chosen from the entries and the filmmaker will be invited to the conference in Geneva to participate at the screening, including in a discussion of the film following its screening.  The conference will pay for all travel expenses of the filmmaker as well as an honorarium of 2,500 USD.  

As English is the language of the conference, the film must either be in English or have English subtitles.  It should range in length from around 25’ to 45’ (or be able to be edited to that length).

Interested filmmakers should submit a short, written summary of the film, their CV and a link enabling the organizing committee to be able to access the film in order to view it.  Please send entries to rdw@ilo.org.  Entries should be received by 20 March, 2017.  The winner will be notified by 20 April, 2017.
