Through August 31: Hawaiʻi Women & Girls Video Storytelling Initiative

August 15

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating indefinitely

Hawaii Women In Filmmaking is calling for submissions for short videos that capture women and girls’ struggles and dreams for a gender-responsive recovery plan for COVID-19. The videos need to be focused primarily on the needs and perspectives of women, girls, femme-identified and nonbinary people, women of color, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander and immigrant women in Hawaiʻi.

As a feminist filmmaking organization with strong ties to local communities, Hawaii Women In Filmmaking is offering their experience and expertise in collaboration with the Hawaiʻi State Commission on the Status of Women and other local organizations to uplift the Building Bridges, Not Walking on Backs – A Hawaiʻi Feminist Economic Recovery Plan for COVID-19 and the Feminist Economic Response Team.

We need to ensure women and women’s groups have a voice in decision-making around pandemic response. In this process, we need to pay specific attention to the needs and perspectives of women, girls, femme-identified and nonbinary people, women of color and Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander and immigrant women in Hawaiʻi.

Submissions will go through an editorial panel and if approved by the panel, HWF may pay an honorarium of $500 for video.

The curated videos will be instrumental in implementing recovery and stimulus actions that include input from the impacted, essential sectors that employ a majority of women and organizations that serve women, girls and people who identify as women, femme and nonbinary people. This process will advance larger, long-term structural changes that improve the outcomes for Hawaiʻi’s women, girls, and expansive people.
