FESTIVAL

FESTIVAL

Construir Cine celebrates national and international cinema aiming to recognize and support new filmmakers and to improve knowledge, accessibility and understanding of socio-labor issues among a wide and diverse public.
The Festival seeks to foster creativity and support the dissemination of audiovisual works that contain stories about work and workers, privileging their point of view on the world and social issues affecting their daily work, the life of their families and the reality of the community to which they belong.

Construir Cine is an event organized by Fundación UOCRA for the Education of Construction Workers through its TV network CONSTRUIR TV —hereinafter, the Organizer— with support from the National Institute of Cinema and Audiovisual Arts (INCAA), through its television signal INCAA TV and its on-demand platform ODEÓN, and sponsored by UOCRA CULTURA.
Both the TV network CONSTRUIR TV and the “CONSTRUIR CINE” festival are part of a groundbreaking proposal aimed at offering quality entertainment plus social consciousness. A sensitive and insightful view on the world of work and labor.

SOCIAL-LABOUR ISSUES

SOCIAL-LABOUR ISSUES

As to content, the works to be submitted must tell stories related to the world of work and female/male workers. Within the wide scope of the topic, by way of example, please find below the four main themes on which Construir TV and Construir Cine are based:

People

Life stories in which the main characters are the workers themselves, their realities and dreams through intimate stories that expose the contribution of each individual in the realization of a work or project and the construction of society.

Education

Training makes people more competent and competitive, and improves workers' life quality. Education-based entertainment. Innovative formats that rely on education as a fundamental part of individual progress and of society as a whole.

Industry

Industry is the meeting place for technological and human resources. In this area, the role of entrepreneurship, business activity, scientific and technological advances, state participation, the role of trade unions and human capital are evident. The development of industry as a way towards the future of work.

Social dimension

A cornerstone for the construction of the production structures of a country, we believe that the social dimension is the basis upon which better societies are to be built. Issues such as: solidarity, ecological awareness, sustainability and care of the planet in which we live, fundamental rights in the workplace, gender equality, inclusion, child labor, forced labor, migrant labor, disability and work, and social protection, among others, are all valid topics to apply for the contest.

In the 2017 edition, the Festival will focus on the “Child Labor - Forced Labor” theme, therefore those registered works that specifically tackle some of these topics will be prioritized at the time of selection, though all socio-labor issues will be considered in all competitions.

Those works not dealing with the work/labor topic as described above will not be included in the contest.
