Social Film Production con il Sud: 10 projects selected

26 April 2021

Ten projects have been selected through the second edition of Social Film Production Con il Sud, a call for proposals promoted by Fondazione CON IL SUD and Apulia Film Commission aiming at representing Southern Italy and its social phenomena.

The audiovisual projects belong to as many categories as requested by the call: “Environment”, “Culture”, “Legality”, “Territory”, “Rights”, “New Generations”, “Women’s Thought”, “Active Citizenship”, “Beyond Stereotypes” and “Covid Emergency”. The  projects, that will be film mostly in Puglia, Sicilia and Campania, will be fund with a total budget of 400.000 euros.

Social Film Production con il Sud is a unique call for proposals, because it requires italian and international movie enterprises to work with non profit organizations from Southern Italy – the area where Fondazione CON IL SUD operates. Movie enterprises bring the cinematographic expertise, while the non profit organizations can take care of the best valorisations and promotion of the social themes addressed, cooperating both in the phase of writing the screenplay and in the phase of promotion and dissemination of the audiovisual product. The selected movies from the first edition of the call are still collecting successes, proving that experiment worked.

The initiative is realised by Fondazione CON IL SUD and Apulia Film Commission, financed by Regione Puglia – Assessorato Industria Turistica e Culturale, in the framework of the strategic plan “Custodiamo la Cultura in Puglia” based on FSC Puglia 2014-2020 resources – Patto per la Puglia and Fondazione CON IL SUD’s own resources.
