Submit Your Reviews for #Gender in #Indian #Films @100
To mark 100 years of Indian cinema, we are inviting people to submit reviews for our “Gender in Indian Films @100” film review series. To read previously published reviews click here.
Below are the guidelines. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE MAKING YOUR SUBMISSION.
→ 1) We invite submissions from everyone regardless of gender, nationality and race. If you’ve seen a Bollywood film that you’d like to talk about in context of gender, we want to hear from you!
→ 2) Print the name of the film you are reviewing and your name on the top. This must be an Indian film, though it can be in any language, and from any time period. Note: your film does not have to be a recent one.
→ 3) Your review must focus on a gender aspect of the film. Here are some ideas: How is male and/or female gender portrayed; how is male and/or female sexuality portrayed; how is gender violence or gender hierarchy, or the interaction of the sexes portrayed. You can focus on any other ‘gender issue’ that strikes you about the film.
→ 4) Word limit is 1000 words. Do include a brief 150 word or less synopsis of the film. BUT HERE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR REVIEW: The bulk of your review must be about your personal response to the film. We are not interested in a general synopsis. What we want to know is what impact this film had on YOU. What emotions and thoughts did it arouse in you? Or what events in your life or family did it make you think about? Did it make you rethink something? And why? Make it personal!
→ 5) Also include a 2 line bio about yourself and your background. Include links to your blog and/or twitter account if you wish. Then copy and paste your submission below. If your submission is accepted we will email you.
