Alwan for the Arts and 3rd i NY have launched the second annual Alwan 3rd i Awards Competition 2014 and are soliciting new, short films and/or video art (produced 2012 or later) by Arab/ Middle Eastern/ North African/South Asian and Central Asian directors OR films about those regions and their diasporas by filmmakers of all backgrounds.
The Alwan 3rd i Awards Competition aims to present the very best in recent short films and video art that increase awareness of the creative vitality and sociopolitical realities of the Middle East, North Africa and South and Central Asia as well as their global diasporas. Films of all genres are welcome. Please limit submissions to 20 minutes or less total running time. All submissions will be screened and selected for screening by an appointed selection committee.
A post-screening salon session will provide participating filmmakers and artists the benefit of feedback from the diverse and engaging audience that Alwan and 3rd i NY have cultivated over the last ten years of intense programming. Well-versed in the history, languages, and cultures of the North African, Middle Eastern, and South and Central Asian regions, our audience thrives on healthy debate and cross-cultural learning.

3rd I New York’s monthly film/video/media salon is designed by local filmmakers and cultural producers to showcase the works of independent media makers of South Asian, Central Asian, and Arab descent. Providing alternative forums for these filmmakers who often have few venues to showcase their work and whose cultures and histories are often demonized or misrepresented in mainstream media, not only increases their visibility, but also provides a social forum for peers and audiences to participate in an ongoing discussion.
3rdi NY Film Programming is made possible in part with public funds from the Fund for Creative Communities, supported by New York State Council on the Arts, and the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, both in partnership with the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. Alwan for the Arts hosts our monthly screenings series. We are thankful to the SINGH Foundation for acting as our fiscal sponsor
