People who have made films highlighting workplace safety risks are being urged to enter them for an annual award.
Entries can be in the form of a documentary or animation. They could also examine workers’ rights, the impact of economic or political changes on the way people work, specific sectors such as the construction industry or groups such as ageing or disabled workers.
‘Films should spark debate’
The judges will be looking for a film that stimulates debate and highlights the importance of health and safety at work.
The best film will also be turned into a DVD – complete with subtitles in several European languages – with a production run of 1,000.
The Healthy Workplaces Film Award contest is run by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) as part of the annual Leipzig International Festival for Documentary and Animated Films.
Entries for the film award should be submitted via the Dok Leipzig 2016 website by July 7. The festival itself will take place in Germany in the autumn.
