The U.S. Embassy in Moldova seeks to support independent voices in the Moldovan media landscape. Specifically, this initiative seeks to support the development of a community of filmmakers and digital content creators who use their medium to present an alternative vision of Moldovan society and culture. This initiative focuses on the narrative short format (live action, maximum running time of five minutes – 5:00). 

The embassy seeks a partner to implement a 48-hour film festival that will allow emerging filmmakers from Moldova, Romania, and Ukraine to showcase their talent and develop a regional community of creative content producers. Emerging filmmakers would be professionals in the early to middle stages of their career (at least one year of experience working in a professional media environment).
