Call for Submissions Deadline Extended: Divine Interventions
Cinema Politica is currently seeking submissions of independent Canadian works for a special screening project called Divine Interventions: Documentary, Spirituality and Social Justice. We have extended the deadline to March 31, 2013.Led by Cinema Politica, the project is a partnership with the Documentary Organization of Canada (DOC) and the Inspirit Foundation.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Divine Interventions: Documentary, Spirituality and Social Justice explores the role spirituality, religion and secularism play in fostering or inhibiting a plurality of perspectives, understanding across cultural, religious, and ethnic borders, and participation in social causes. This screening initiative starts in inclusive spaces where audiences, artists and activists interrogate the intersection of spirituality and social justice, and subsequently moves on to a sustained online conversation with the aim of fostering engaged communities across geographic barriers.
The project will consist of 30-40 documentary screenings followed by panel discussions and open forum dialogues held at Cinema Politica locals, on campuses across Canada, beginning in the spring of 2013.
We are looking for short, medium and feature-length experimental and narrative documentaries that explore the intersection of spirituality and social justice. We are interested in works that advance a dialogue around the ways in which spirituality and religion affect activism and/or other aspects of social justice.
