The Dresden ARTS team promotes a video competition on local sustainability initiatives, which is conducted in close cooperation with the local transition initiative “Stories of Change”. We are inviting everybody to portray his or her favourite local transition initiative by sending us a short video (maximum 3 to 5 minutes) plus a written version of his or her storyboard (maximum 1 page). A jury of moviemakers (SOC/ Sukuma association), scientists (Dresden ARTS team), and the wider public will vote on the movies and concepts submitted by the reporters of change and will award the three most promising ideas. The prize money is going to be invested in a professional production of the three best films (honouring the “directors of change”). These professional movies will be shown not only at this year´s Umundu festival but also at other occasions.
