The organisers of the IREP International Documentary Film Festival calls for 2016 entries, it is scheduled to hold on the24th - 27th of March 2016.
Theme for the 2016 IREP is CHANGE - Documentary Films as Agent Provocateur!
'Africa is going through a whirlwind of complex issues on many fronts that challenge our understanding of the world, of ourselves and how we sustain our pursuit of peace and prosperity. Poverty, epidemics, Terrorism, Civil wars, racial inequalities, economic imbalances, imperialism, corruption and political divisions - these challenges are urgent and critical. They demand a response. In a world of Sound-bites, documentaries provide an opportunity to think, understand, and connect the dots. Documentary films are exploring the issues of our time, offering perspective, historical context and possibilities. They are controversial, divisive, fascinating, unexpected, and surprising.
Documentary is not a deliberate art form, It starts from questions not answers. It's success relies not in having all the answers, but in asking the right questions. Documentary is subversive in the age of change' Femi Odugbemi (Co-Founder & Executive Director, IREP Documentary Film Forum)
