The 12th edition of the annual iREPRESENT International Documentary Film Festival (iREP) will hold from March 17 – 20, 2022 on the theme – “UNFILTERED: African Stories. Stories from Africa”, has made a call for entries.
The festival organisers who said in the announcement “we have the right audience for your film”, added that they are currently accepting films submissions for screening consideration at the festival and would be very excited to have your film.
For 11 years, iREP has provided a platform for filmmakers from different parts of the world to share their works and engage audiences in very insightful discussions.
Submissions, which close on January 31, 2022 can be made here
The festival is conceptually framed around the iREP generic theme of Africa in Self-Conversation, which the organisers have maintained over the years, is drawn from the founding conceptual framework of the iREP Documentary Film Forum designed to promote awareness about the power of the documentary format to serve as a means of deepening and sharing social and cultural education as well as encouraging participatory democracy in African societies.
Last year, iREP held a joint virtual film fest in conjunction with the US-based African World Documentary Film Festival (AWDFF). featuring documentary filmmakers from 26 countries in five of six continents of the world showcase their works to diverse audiences around the world no thanks to the pandemic.
