Journalists and filmmakers can submit their projects.

The European Union-funded MedFilm4all project has launched its second call for proposals. The program seeks to support local initiatives in Tunisia, Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine and Libya.

Projects must address problems related to access to films, tackling social and gender issues in rural areas.

Priority will be given to projects aiming to widen the audience for films in rural settings, especially amongst the youth, and improve the image of women through the audiovisuals, also reinforcing capacities of women working in the film industry sector.

The total budget available is EUR984,000 (US$ 1,151,955). The maximum grant per project is EUR82,000 (US$ 95.996).
