Sponsorship of Showcase Award
The SDGFilmfest was formed by LSPR and DMU in March 2018.
Participants recognised the sheer scope and importance of global challenges such as equality, the environment, human and civil rights, and the need to raise awareness of these issues within Developing Nations and the West to facilitate their achievement.
SDGFilmfest is funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund and by the London School of Public Relations, Indonesia. As the project grows, the film festival will expand to cover additional territories as part of its wider mission and reach. Future festivals are anticipated to take place in Malaysia, China, Thailand, Nigeria and India over the next five years.
In June 2021, I was again delighted to sponsor the SDG FilmFest Documentary Media Centre Showcase Award.
The winners were Faras Angguni & Jefverson Alexandro (LSPR Jakarta) and Egle Kuslyte (DMU Leicester) for their 10-minute documentary called Scavenger Dream. I managed to catch up with Faras & Jefverson to discuss their film and learn more about what motivated them to create it.
