The Simulizi (Storytelling) Festival is not just a mere event; it's a semi year-round, multidisciplinary storytelling initiative that goes beyond the boundaries of traditional festivals. This dynamic platform harnesses the expressive mediums of film to initiate positive transformations and ignite conversations among the vibrant youth.

Committed to investing in the authenticity of youth narratives, the Simulizi Festival becomes a fertile ground for fostering vibrant discussion on most pressing issues.

Within this secure and nurturing space, the festival beckons young individuals to step forward and share their personal stories, addressing critical social issues that often go unspoken. By catalyzing open dialogue, Simulizi Festival becomes a melting pot of ideas, inviting attendees to explore and address various aspects of society within a supportive and artistically charged atmosphere.

In a world where discussions about youth matters are frequently overlooked or met with discomfort, the Simulizi Festival stands tall as a beacon of change. It doesn't just host an event; it cultivates a movement that challenges the status quo, emphasizing the importance of youth perspectives.

The second edition of this transformative journey takes place in the heart of art in East Africa, Dar Es Salaam, from the 26th of July to the 14th of December, 2024. It proudly stands as the first African-based youth film festival, utilizing the powerful medium of film to reach out to youth, both in and out of schools and colleges. The festival unfolds through a series of weekly film screenings, accompanied by thought-provoking debates and interactive Q&A sessions with protagonists, social activists, and government officials. This year, the festival expect to reach out more than 8,000 people across Tanzania mainland.

This festival is more than just a celebration; it is a testament to the power of storytelling and art in breaking down barriers, promoting understanding, and encouraging proactive engagement with pivotal societal issues. As the Simulizi Festival continues to evolve, its impact on youth empowerment and holistic well-being resonates outward, creating a brighter, well-informed future for all who engage with its vibrant tapestry of stories and perspectives.

The reflection of the role of the elderly in the family, sentimental, emotional and social relationships. The positive or negative consequences of cinema into stereotypes and believings about the elder and even if it treats the same way both man and women.

The importance of dignifying the intergenerational relationships between youngsters and elderlies becames vital in order to find ways towards a better future.

11th version of the International Documentary Film Festival Globale - Bogotá
The Globale International Documentary Film Festival - Bogotá invites documentary filmmakers and audiovisual producers to submit proposals that revolve around utopias under
construction, that is, human and non-human resistance to live in freedom and autonomy.

About the festival
Globale—Critical and Emancipatory Perspectives is a non-profit and non-competitive festival that exhibits documentaries with political and social themes. It was founded in
Berlin in 2003 and later replicated in Warsaw, Montevideo, Rio de Janeiro, and Bogota, where it has been held since 2011.
Its objective is to generate scenarios of denunciation, dialogue, awareness, and analysis of reality based on the themes established for each version. Thus, it proposes
transforming established cultural, social, and economic models. For them, we resort to the documentary without a hierarchy of formats, media, qualities, or academic or
industrial validations.

About this version
In this version of the festival, we want to focus on utopias that inspire us to continue resisting the capitalist system of exploitation and domination. Therefore, we are interested
in hopeful audiovisual proposals of living and active struggles and propose the following sub-themes:
Nature in resistance:
Proposals that leave behind the anthropocentric paradigm and focus on different ecologies, organisms, and living systems and their ways of adapting to change through
strategies such as succession, regeneration, retaking, and creating relationships with other forms of life, among others. This theme also includes documentaries that present
other ways in which people relate to their living environment and, in doing so, refuse to participate in the destruction and instrumentalization of life that capitalism promotes.
Collectivities in resistance:
Documentaries that portray the strategies of self-organization, action, cooperation, and creation of networks and communities of collectivities that oppose the various forms of
oppression from places outside the state and its institutions, thereby building paths towards a freer and more supportive world.
Technologies in resistance:
We understand technology as a set of tools, techniques, skills, abilities, knowledge, and processes. From this perspective, we invite documentary proposals that portray
experiences where technology is part of collective or community processes that create autonomy, degrees of freedom, and other/new ways of relating between ecosystems.

Corrosive is a new festival for those who find joy and entertainment in horror and fantasy films.

Taking place in San Jose, Costa Rica, our goal is to bring followers of dark, gory and fantastic stories closer to films that are not shown regularly at commercial movie theaters in the country. We expect Costa Rican audiences to be eager to devour all those movies during the 5 days of the festival.

But over and above all, Corrosive is the kind of film festival that we would have loved to attend back in our college years, to experience and digest all kinds of unique proposals in the genre.
