The International Hrant Dink Foundation has based a film project with the theme of "conscience" upon a quotation of the Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink, who was assassinated in 2007.
He had said: “The voice of common sense and of conscience has been sacrificed, now this conscience tries to find a way out.”
The films can be uploaded to the project’s website and will be evaluated by the jury before they are going to be broadcast.
Members of the jury are Costa Gavras, Georges Moustaki, Harutyun Khachatryan, İbrahim Betil, Lale Mansur, Nebahat Akkoç, Ömer Madra, Rakel Dink, Rela Mazali, Serge Avedikian, Serra Yılmaz, Vaughan Pilikian and Yıldırım Türker.
Of all the submitted movies 20 films will be chosen and edited into one long movie as a whole.
Short movies can be submitted from 1 August to 30 November. Participation is open to everyone, previous filming experience is not required.
The movies should be in Turkish, English, or Armenian. Further details can be found on the project’s website www.vicdanfilmeri.org (ET/EÜ/VK/AG)
