Tender: Filmmaker on Women, Land and Corruption in Africa | Land Portal

Transparency International is seeking a filmmaker to produce a short film of approx. 40 minutes length that tells a story about women, land and corruption in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The links between land corruption and women’s wellbeing and prosperity are evident across Africa. Women’s strong dependency on land as a resource means that land corruption disadvantages them more than men. Such corruption takes many forms, including traditions preventing women from inheriting land, bribery and sexual extortion by community leaders and land officials, and multinational investors appropriating land traditionally worked by women. Land corruption increases gender disparities, which undermines women’s livelihoods and social standing and, ultimately, perpetuates poverty. More information on the topic can be found here.

The story of the film should tell how women in the region experience land corruption, how it affects their lives, and which strategies they follow against it. One specific issue the film could address is the sexual extortion women can experience in relation to land. Other issues are women’s participation in decision making over land, and the effect of large scale land investments on women.

Filmmakers are invited to pitch their ideas to Transparency International. The film should speak to a general global large audience. It is envisaged that the film will be screened at festivals and conferences.

Application Closing Date - 15 Sep 2018
