The call aims to support projects that address themes related to gender based discrimination, women and girl’s education, violence against women & girls, child abuse and harassment.

  • Gender based discrimination: Biases in the workplace, income levels, employment opportunities, stereotypes about women’s domesticated roles and other similar narratives.
  • Women and girls’ education: Inspirational stories of women and girls overcoming social and financial obstacles to attend and complete schooling, stories demonstrating the positive impact of education on women and girls, etc.
  • Violence Against Women & Girls (VAWG): Physical or mental violence.
  • Child abuse: Physical, sexual, neglect.
  • Harassment: including in public places, at the workplace, on the streets. However, instead of emphasizing on the negative, these stories will focus on how women/girls overcome instances of public harassment either by themselves or through the law (each story reminding viewers of the legal, physical and social protection afforded to them by law).

Funding Information

  • Grants are available for production and post production stages. The outcome of the grants will be the short film produced for the showcase.
  • The ceiling of the grant is 100,000 PKR for each project.
