Transparency International is offering an opportunity for a filmmaker to produce a film that tells a story about women, land, and corruption in sub-Saharan Africa.

The film should tell how women experience land corruption, how it affects their lives, and which strategies they follow to struggle against it. One issue the film could address is bribery and sexual extortion by community leaders and land officials. Other issues include women’s participation in decision-making over land and the effects of large-scale land investments on women.

Transparency International is inviting filmmakers to pitch their ideas. Films should speak to a general global audience. The film will likely be screened at festivals and conferences, and should be finished by March 2019.

The deadline to apply is Sept. 15.
