Manama, The Arab Regional Center for World Heritage (ARC-WH) is launching “My Heritage” film competition, on the 50th anniversary of the 1972 World Heritage Convention and the 10th anniversary of its establishment.
The competition is part of ARC-WH’s Arab Youth for Heritage initiatives that encourages youth to build a deeper understanding of the significance of such sites and build personal connection with it; by highlighting heritage and the impact it has on their lives.
The competition is open to all Arab youth interested in culture, heritage, media, and technology between the ages of 18 and 28 who have access to a World Heritage site in their country of residence.
The primary language of the entered films must be Arabic and submitted via ARC-WH’s website (www.arcwh.org) no later than May 15.
The films can be the works of an individual or groups not exceeding three people. Previous experience in media or film productions is not necessary.
The creators of the shortlisted films will attend two workshops conducted via teleconferencing by ARC-WH offering tips and guidance in the fields of film production, editing, and proper use of technical equipment to improve their films.
Following the final judging process, the winners will be announced and invited to screen their films during ARC-WH’s 10th anniversary celebrations in September.
