      2nd INTERNATIONAL VIDEO REPORTING AWARD
      www.videoreporter.org


      The 2nd International Video Reporting Award is an international
      competition specifically geared towards innovative documentary shorts
      and non-fiction digital films helmed by a single autonomous author.

      Video Reporting is the merge of cinematography, editing, sound and
      directing in one single persons hand.
      Film and television technicians adopt these digital documentary
      techniques and regard the resultant new autonomous ways of production as
      a challenge.

      Not only will the jury and the preselection committee judge the idea and
      conception of the film but they will also place great emphasis on the
      way the filmmaker creatively dealt with the new digital authoring
      principle.

      Smaller cameras offer more freedom of movement and consequently often
      lead to new perspectives and prospects differing from what you see on
      television.
      Additionally, commercial video editing software has achieved a level of
      sophistication allowing for quick and playful experimentation with the
      footage.
      The end results are journalistic films which inspire new boundaries in
      the field of TV journalism.

      We seek outstanding films that experiment with this new mode of
      production and whose journalistic-cinematic narrative catches our
      attention in form and content.

      Furthermore the films should withstand traditional quality criteria and
      simultaneously broaden the boundaries of mainstream television.

      We are looking for documentary films and authentically narrated stories
      captivating us with their particular intensity, an innovative creativity
      and a very distinctive personal authoring style.

      We also place a great deal of emphasis on the filmmakers fondness for
      experimentation, however, keeping in mind the presented films should not
      exceed 15 minutes and they should have been produced by one or more
      Video Reporters/ Video Journalists.


      The 2nd International Video Reporting Award is being borne by the
      Bauhaus University Weimar as well as those television broadcast stations
      that are already working together with Video Journalists large scale –
      Hessischer Rundfunk, Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk, Deutsche Welle TV .

      The 2nd International Video Reporting Award is going to take place on
      the 5. and 6. November in Weimar. It is being organised by the
      professorship Medienereignisse of the media faculty of the Bauhaus
      University Weimar.

      Videoreporters, Video journalists, documentary filmmakers, program
      managers, journalists and TV directors from all across Europe and the
      USA will discuss the potential of video reporting/ video journalism in
      contrast with mainstream television in public screenings, panels and
      discussions.

      The awards ceremony will take place on the 6. November 2005 in the "Mon
      Ami" cinema and cultural centre in Weimar.


      Prizes will be awarded in the following categories:

      INTERNATIONAL VIDEO REPORTING AWARD

      Criteria: Documentary film of 15 minutes length at most, which has been
      produced by one or more Video Journalists/ Video Reporters. Open category.
      Those films will be awarded that experiment with this new mode of
      production and outstand by a journalistic – cinematic narrative in form
      and content. The filmmaker's fondness of experimentation is very
      important to us.


      GERMAN VIDEO JOURNALISM / VIDEO REPORTING AWARD
      Criteria: Television documentary of 15 minutes length at most, which has
      been produced by one or more Video Journalists/ Videoreporters and
      broadcasted by a German television broadcast station (please explicitly
      state broadcast station and date of broadcasting). Those
      journalistically as well as technically outstanding works will be
      awarded that also meet the claims of mainstream television and show an
      innovative and self-contained personal style.


      VIDEO JOURNALISM/ VIDEO REPORTING TALENT AWARD
      Criteria: Film of 15 minutes length at most, which has been produced by
      one or more Videoreporters/ Video Journalists. The applicants must be
      under the age of thirty or enrolled in a University for admission. We

      in content or cinematography and that show us the applicants'
      outstanding potential.


      The festival is directed by Sabine Streich and curated by Albert Beckmann.

        Ausschreibung 2. Internationaler Video Reporting Award
        www.videoreporter.org !Deadline 15. September!

        Der 2. Internationale Video Reporting Award ist ein internationaler
        Wettbewerb für innovative dokumentarische Kurzfilme und Beiträge einzeln
        arbeitender Autoren. Regie, Kamera, Ton und Schnitt und liegen in einer
        Hand. Die Film- und Fernsehschaffenden nutzen das Gestaltungspotenzial
        der Digitaltechnik und begreifen die neuen autonomen
        Produktionsmöglichkeiten als Herausforderung. Vorauswahlkommission und
        Jury bewerten neben Idee und Konzeption die schöpferische
        Auseinandersetzung mit dem digitalen Autorenprinzip.

        Kleine Kameras ermöglichen mehr Bewegungsfreiheit und können oft zu
        neuen Ein- und Ausblicken führen. Die mobilen Schnittsysteme werden
        immer stabiler und leistungsfähiger, so dass das selbst gedrehte
        Rohmaterial aktueller, spielerischer und experimenteller verarbeitet
        werden kann. Das Resultat sind filmische Beiträge, die die gegenwärtige
        Fernsehberichterstattung weiterentwickeln. Wir suchen dokumentarische
        Filme, authentisch erzählte Geschichten, die durch besondere Intensität,
        durch eine innovative Gestaltung und durch eine unverwechselbare
        Autorenhaltung überzeugen. Sie sollten klassischen inhaltlichen und
        formalen Qualitätskriterien standhalten, aber gleichzeitig die Grenzen
        des herkömmlichen Fernsehens erweitern.

        Wir suchen Filme die mit dieser neuen Art von Produktionsweise
        experimentieren und durch eine eigene journalistisch-filmische
        Erzählweise inhaltlich und formal herausragen. Die Experimentierfreude
        der Macher steht hierbei für uns im Vordergrund. Die eingereichten
        Beiträge dürfen eine Gesamtlänge von 15 Minuten nicht überschreiten. Die
        Filme müssen von einem oder mehreren Videojournalisten / Videoreportern
        produziert worden sein.

        Der 2. International Video Reporting Award wird getragen von den Sendern
        in Deutschland, die heute schon in erheblichem Umfang mit
        Videojournalisten arbeiten - Hessischer Rundfunk, Mitteldeutscher
        Rundfunk, Deutsche Welle TV - und von der Bauhaus-Universität in Weimar.


        Der 2. International Video Reporting Award findet am 5. und am 6.
        November 2005 in Weimar statt. Er wird ausgerichtet von der Professur
        Medienereignisse der Fakultät Medien an der Bauhaus-Universität Weimar.
        In öffentlichen Screenings und Diskussionen werden sich Videoreporter /
        Videojournalisten, Dokumentarfilmer, Programmmacher, Journalisten,
        Fernsehchefs aus Europa und den USA mit den gegenwärtigen Positionen des
        Video Reportings auseinandersetzen und die besonderen programmlichen
        Möglichkeiten des Videoreporters / Videojournalisten ausloten. Die
        Preisverleihung findet am 6. November 2005 im Kino und Kulturzentrum
        „mon ami“ in Weimar statt.
