VIDEOS AND DOCUMENTARIES
The conference will provide spaces to screen short videos and documentaries in the historic centre of Oaxaca City during the first and second afternoons of the conference. Videos and documentaries should focus on social-ecological dynamics, and highlight either challenges or opportunities faced by stakeholders. These can include projects carried out by academic institutions, governmental and non-governmental organizations, and civil society that are relevant to any of four conference themes.
During the screening sessions (maximum 30 minutes), the conveners will be invited to briefly introduce the work and then open a space for questions and comments, and a discussion with the public about the themes addressed in their work. Specific conditions to be met by video and documentary submissions include:
That they are non-commercial, nor self-promotional recordings of any kind,
That the director (or some other participants of the film) are present at the conference,
That they have subtitles in or are spoken in English.
Video and documentary session proposals should have the following structure (max 400 words):
Title, director, duration, and objective of the video or documentary,
Short synopsis that explains the specific questions or issues to be dealt with in the video or documentary,
Online screener or trailer if possible. If the film is selected, session organizers are expected to provide a high-resolution video file of the final version.
Organizers should submit a proposal (maximum of 400 words) with the following information:
✓ names and contact details of the organizers,
✓ title and purpose of the video or documentary,
✓ topics that the video or documentary addresses,
✓ ways in which the video or documentary addresses the general themes or cross-cutting lines of the event, as well as cultural diversity,
✓ duration (maximum 30 minutes),

If proposals are accepted, they will be placed on the registration page so that conference participants can select which video or documentary session they wish to attend.
