JuLY 19, 2011

FILM PRODUCTION USING iNTERNATIONAL idea CASE STUDIES oF SUCCESSFUL MARGINALIZED GROUP INCLUSION IN CUSTOMARY AND NON CUSTOMARY GOVERNANCE

The International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA) is an intergovernmental organization established in 1995, with member states across all continents, which aims to support sustainable democracy world-wide and assist in the development of institutions and the culture of democracy. At the interface between research, fieldwork and the donor community, International IDEA provides a forum for dialogue, builds networks of experts, develops training materials and provides strategic advice at the international, regional and national level, cooperating with a range of organizations.

The Institute now invites proposals from film makers (organizations or individuals) for producing at least two pilot films of a minimum of 15 minutes duration based on case studies submitted to International IDEA by field researchers and practitioners on ways in which groups that have previously been marginalized by the “dominant” culture or social/political structure have been able to overcome their marginalization to participate in decision making processes and gain acceptance by the dominant culture. Summaries of such case studies will be posted on International IDEA’s website on August 24, 2011. A detailed description of the assignment is provided in the Terms of Reference, available at http://www.idea.int.

The Director’s cuts of the films produced will be submitted on December 2 2011 and, after feedback provided by International IDEA, final versions completed by December 22 2011. The maximum budget to be allocated for the project is €75,000. The agreed final budget allocation will be paid in two instalments. These include an initial payment of no more than 15% of the film maker’s budgeted fee, with the remaining amount to be paid upon the film’s completion. International IDEA will nevertheless provide advances on reimbursable expenses such as travel, accommodation, communications, consumables and supplies (see attached Annex A’s General Conditions for Contracts for Provision of Services)

The film maker will be selected in accordance with the procedures set out in the Request for Proposals and accompanying Terms of Reference.

Interested film makers may obtain further information on the assignment by emailing the Project Manager, Julian Smith at J.Smith@idea.int.

Film making proposal summaries of no more than 2,000 words together with CVs and examples of previous work must be delivered by hard copy or electronic mail to the address below by September 16, 2011. Late submissions will not be considered. Interviews with short listed film makers will take place in the week September 19-23.
