Digital Storytellers Competition from the Swiss Programme for Research on Global Issues for Development

r4d program is inviting experienced filmmakers, film producers, or distribution companies to prepare idea notes for the second phase to produce short films with clear key messages to enrich concrete international development debates and tailored to specific target audiences in the 2030 Agenda realm.

The available budget for the second phase of the Digital Storytellers project is CHF 180’000 and should enable the production of more than one short film by different filmmakers.

Background:

The Swiss Programme for Research on Global Issues for Development (r4d program) is a joint funding initiative by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF). The r4d program is aimed at researchers in Switzerland and in developing and emerging countries who wish to execute a joint research project on global issues. The program focuses on reducing poverty and protecting public goods in developing countries.

This synthesis stream has two phases:

  • Participatory production of a collection of video-clips (2018-2020) that captures testimonies and contributions in achieving SDGs in r4d partner countries. Twenty-eight so-called Digital Storytellers (DST) individuals and teams participated in this phase, representing 16 r4d research projects. The product is a collection of 22 video-clips (3-6 minutes) and 18 short versions (1-2 minutes) used for dissemination via Twitter. All videoclips were produced based on footage collected by researchers during their fieldwork. Many of them filmed for the first time. All DST video-clips are published until the end of August 2020 on the Knowledge for Development platform of the r4d program, www.k4d.ch. 
  • Production of short films (from 2021-TBD) with clear key messages to enrich concrete international development debates and tailored to specific target audiences in the 2030 Agenda realm. The short films shall make use of and extend, if necessary, the footage resulting from the first phase.

Selection Process:

The selection process for the Digital Storytellers second phase has two steps:

  • The call for idea notes aims at clarifying the potential use of the available film material and the potentially emerging messages. The idea notes outline steps for producing and disseminating short films as contributions to working towards the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda.
  • The submitted idea notes will be evaluated by the r4d Steering Committee, composed of representatives of the two funders SDC and SNSF. It will select a small number of idea notes for preparing full proposals for short films. For the preparation of full proposals, the r4d program will make fully available the existing film material. Successful proposals will be implemented starting from January 2021.

Template for idea notes:

  • Your idea in short: Describe the essentials of your idea in 2-3 sentences.
  • Key messages related to the contribution of the r4d program to the 2030 Agenda: Please present tentatively in bullet points the key messages that your proposed short film(s) will convey and the rationale behind these key points (i.e. why are these interesting for the specific target audience? How do these messages emerge from the available material?).
  • Target audience: Please specify tentatively the target audience for the proposed short film and the rationale for selecting this specific target audience (i.e. why is this target audience relevant for disseminating results from the r4d program? Why is this target audience interested in the key messages?)
  • Dissemination opportunities and strategy: Please state tentatively the dissemination opportunities/events for the proposed short film and explain why you consider this opportunity relevant. Please explain tentatively the dissemination strategy for your proposed film.
  • Use of the material available from the DST phase I and other film output: Explain how you plan to make use of existing audio-visual material from DST phase I and from other film outputs of the r4d program.
  • Please provide a preliminary timeframe with people involved and their roles.
  • Please include a preliminary budget clarifying the costs of specific lines.
