Since 2019, YWCA-YMCA of Sweden has actively invested in young filmmaking to strengthen young people’s voices. Together with our partners and member organizations we have produced a documentary in Togo and supported young people in using film to portray their everyday lives. Now, we want to take another step forward by announcing a film grant!
YWCA-YMCA of Sweden’s film grant is awarded to young filmmakers among our partner organizations in Africa, Eastern Europe and Palestine to support projects that address young people’s role and opportunities in society and/or young people’s work towards a peaceful and sustainable society. The grant’s size is SEK 25,000. The grant can be sought by anyone under 30 years of age. The grant welcomes those who are working with film as well as beginners. A total of two grants will be awarded.
