For the first time, BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) in London will mark European anti-Human Trafficking Day, 18 October, by hosting a festival of films about trafficking and the moves to combat what Pope Francis has described as a 'crime against humanity'. It is organised by RENATE (Religious in Europe Networking Against Trafficking and Exploitation).
As part of the festival, RENATE is inviting 16-24 year-olds in European countries to join in their mission by entering a film competition, using the following slogan and #tags as themes for short four-minute films.
The slogan is 'Slavery - Human Trafficking - Near YOU!'
The tags are #StopTheDemand, #BreakTheChains and #EndTheCycleTOGETHER.
Winning films will be shown in London at the RENATE Film Festival. First place will be shown at BAFTA, and all three winning entries will be shown at the Royal Society of Arts. Entries can be made by an individual or a team. Up to five team members can attend the festival, and will also receive a certificate.
Competition winners will also receive £2000 for first place, £1000 for second place, and £500 for third place. If entering as a team, the prize money is per entry, so will be shared between team members.
