Opportunity for Egyptian Filmmakers from Home in Quarantine from Revart 2020

While many creatives have the privilege of not needing to leave the confines of their home to cultivate their talent, filmmakers have reached something of a standstill because of the corona-induced lockdown. Revart, New Giza University’s artsy student organization, now offers a super creative and innovative outlet for filmmakers with their homemade vertical film festival.

“Verticals films are more accessible for everyone to make, and they’re also easier to view,” said fourth-year NGU Medical Student and founder of the festival,  Daved Rezk. “It was very important to us to maintain a theme of self-quarantine, and give filmmakers the opportunity to create films out of and based on their current situation.” 

The submitted films must be filmed at home, must be less than 3 minutes long and the film aspect ratio has to be vertical (16:9). The yet-to-be-announced judging panel will then choose 15 of the entries to upload onto the Revart Facebook and Instagram accounts, before reaching a final decision on the first, second and third-placed films. There will also be an audience award that will be voted for by the public, with all awards coming with monetary prizes. 

In the spirit of self-distancing, you can only catch the films online on IGTV and Facebook accounts once the selections and winners have been chosen. Soon, they will also be posting live mini-masterclasses with local filmmakers on Instagram. 

Eligibility of Submission:

  • Applicant must reside in Egypt.
  • The entire film must be filmed in-home.
  • Film length must be less than 3 minutes.
  • Film aspect ratio must be vertical (9:16).
  • Submission deadline: April 20 midnight.
  • By submission of this application, the applicant agrees that her/his film can be uploaded on the festival's social media channels and may be used in the festival's future editions marketing campaigns.
