One Story at a Time Film Festival

We work for protection of child and gender rights using culture-based approaches, and a key challenge in today’s world is gender-based violence (GBV). It is a general term used to capture violence that occurs as a result of the normative role expectations associated with each gender, along with the unequal power relationships between genders, within the context of a specific society. While both girls and women, and men and boys can be victims of GBV, our main focus has been on violence targeting girls and women.

We have been working with American Center, Kolkata, to build youth networks championing the cause of preventing GBV and changing attitudes and behaviour. One Story at a Time is a unique digital storytelling initiative involving young men and women from the Indian states of Assam, Jharkhand and West Bengal, and Bangladesh. The outcome has been 32 short films of less than 3 minutes’ duration each which share diverse aspects of GBV. Most of the films have been shot using mobile cameras.

The One Story at a Time Film Festival on Ending Gender-Based Violence was held at American Center, Kolkata, on September 28. The event showcased all the films. Among them were 24 films in four different languages made by participants during a workshop held earlier this year. The participants developed eight other films in their respective zones. The objective is to empower youth leaders across borders to identify and speak up against gender issues, irrespective of religion, ethnicity or nationality.

Prior to the workshop, the participants attended two webinars and took part in a virtual interaction with Amy Hill Lenita of Story Center, the facilitator of the workshop. Between the webinars and the workshop, the participants also shared their stories with Amy and communicated with her through email.

During the workshop all the 24 participants developed a film each on gender based issues which they came across in their own lives or lives of their known people. The participants made necessary changes on the draft videos and uploaded on the WeVideo software.

The films were judged by an eminent panel of jury like Actors Vinay Pathak and Churni Ganguly and film maker Anindita Sarbadhicari on basis of content, narration, and post production.

The Best Film Award went to Sanjukta Sarkar of Kolkata for her film EGGS. The Runners-Up award was shared by Tasnia Khandaker of Bangladesh for My Name, His Identity and Santu Guchait of Kolkata for Ulfa (Vault). The Special Mention award was shared by Ibtesham Sreen of Jharkhand for Reaching for Dreams and Vinotoli Chisi of Nagaland for Daughter: Human or Property.

Team West Bengal won the Best Zonal Film award for Pink and Blue. The participants involved in making of the film were Antara Raychaudhuri, Mandira Banerjee, Olivia Mondal,  Palak Chokhani, Rahool Goswami and Santu Guchait. The other film made by Team West Bengal was The Stain.

Team Jharkhand produced Ek Kahani Aisi Bhi (A story like this too) and Main aur Meri Kahani (Me and my story).

Team Northeast (Assam and Nagaland) produced Jatra (Journey) and Widwa (Widow).

Team Bangladesh made Ek Cup Coffee (A cup of coffee) and Tobu Amra (Us, regardless).

We hope to continue strengthening the advocacy skills of next generation leaders in the Indo-Pacific region.
