We’re starting off our new year by presenting GLOBAL CITIZEN. CoCA is the official West Coast screening location of the top four award winning films from CARAVAN’s first juried international Smartphone Short Film Festival.
Considering today’s world of challenges and complexities, CARAVAN released an open call in the summer of 2019 to anyone in the world to share their vision of what it means to be a responsible member of this “global family.” Using their smartphone, applicants were asked to make a 3 minute or less film on what it means to make our world more equal, compassionate, fair, peaceful, and sustainable for humanity.
GLOBAL CITIZEN at CoCA will present the top three films plus an honorable mention film juried by the esteemed panel from CARAVAN’s Juried Short Film Festival.
1st prize winner Faten Gaddes (Tunisia),
2nd place winner Mehmet Can Micik (Turkey),
3rd place winner Farideh Naderi (Iran),
Honorable Mention Francis Elegwa Demesi (Kenya).
The top three winners will each receive a $100 cash prize from CoCA.
CARAVAN is an international peacebuilding NGO that uses the arts to build sustainable peace around the world. All of CARAVAN’s art initiatives are developed to promote intercultural and interreligious harmony and provide a link within and between communities. They serve as shared starting points for developing community that inherently respects and honors diversity and working in harmony.
