our 4 festival categories
Films made by Aurovilians, bioregion residents or guests of Auroville
We welcome films on any theme by Aurovilians, neighbours of Auroville, and by guests of Auroville (if the guest made the film during their visit to Auroville). All the films should have been made after August 2015.
Films made about Auroville/bioregion
If you have made a film about Auroville or its neighbourhood, we will screen it in the festival in this category. All the films should have been made since August 2015.
Films made by students of Auroville/bioregion
Any student of an Auroville School or an Auroville Outreach School may enter their film in this category. School students who are living around Auroville may also enter films into the festival even if they do not study in an Auroville School or in an Auroville Outreach School. These films can have any theme. All the films should have been made since August 2015.
Films that develop the theme of Human Unity
As we all know, unity refers to that which is one and cannot be divided; associated with humanity it refers to all that is one or all that can become united in humanity. It includes also all the processes exploring its development: oppositions, difficulties, failures etc…
It can be experienced within oneself or in relation with other human beings …or even with everything that exists in the world… animals, plants and nature, stones, situations, events …
Films may also be suggested to us as an entry into this category. All the films should have been made since January 2014. When suggesting a film to us, it would be very helpful if you could mention the director or even where you think we could source a copy. Use our contact form.
