International Short and Documentary Film Festival – Call for Entries

“In thousands of eyes, in thousands of objects, the city is reflected” – Walter Benjamin

Just Femme in collaboration with Bangalore Film Society and NGMA is proud to announce the inaugural edition of ‘pEtE maatu’- the inaugural short and documentary film festival from 17th to 19th December 2010 at the NGMA auditorium, Bengaluru.

City spaces grow, evolve, and respond to men and women differently. Six-lane roads, a sun-warmed bench in the park, unbroken footpaths, a well-lit bus stop, clean and fast transportation, safe passage home after dark – experiences and expectations are as varied as they come.

pEtE maatu aims to start conversations around the issue of gender in an urban context. The right to spaces that are safe, clean, aesthetic and people-friendly. An aspect of development which is often left out of the development goals and plans set for the city. This three-day event will deconstruct the everyday negotiations that women undertake with the city’s spaces.

• The different kinds of negotiations women undertake in the city spaces.
• Women’s right to mobility and safety.
• What makes a woman-safe city?
• What are the steps can be taken by citizens and policy makers to make our cities safe for women

pEtE maatu invites your short films, documentaries, photographs and articles on the theme of urban space that question, provoke and analyze the issues of gender and city. Impressions, expressions, lucidities, confusions, longings, maps and homes. The grand narratives of the teeming millions and yet, the silent walk down a lonely alley.
