EU releases 3-Minute Film Festival 2013 Winners
In the Contest “Reporter for One Day,” 17 Videos were Received

On 12 December, the Delegation of the European Union to Georgia announced three winners of the EU 3-minute Film Festival 2013. The awards ceremony took place at the Zurab Tsereteli Museum of Modern Art. The prizes were handed out by a special member of the jury, the Georgian writer Dato Turashvili. First prize went to Marita Tevzadze, for “With Hands,” shot with an Apple iPhone 5; second prize was won
by Giorgi Geldiashvili, whose “weapon” was the Mini iPad, with which he shot, “The coloring books.” Tamar Khetaguri was awarded 3rd prize for ‘In one Space.”
In October 2013, the EU Delegation to Georgia announced the second yearly EU 3-Minute Film Festival: a competition for mobiles. The title of the contest was, “EU Reporter for one Day.” The participants were invited to produce creative movies with their mobile devices and provide the public with their own view - in a “reporter fashion” - of one or more projects funded by the European Union in Georgia, and the impact on people’s daily lives. In total 17 videos were received and uploaded.
In the film “With Hands,” we learn that there is only one journal in Georgia, called “Light,” that has a special edition in Braille. Georgian Journal spoke with Tevzadze: “I learned about the festival quite by chance. I knew that there is a tendency now to shoot documentaries by iPhone, and I said to myself: ‘Why not try my abilities?’ Then we entered the site and I selected this theme. Unfortunately, there is only one public school for them, when there are 12,000 blind people. I would be very glad if some steps are taken for the benefit of these people thanks to this project.”
In the movie we learn that this year the Union of the Blind is implementing the project “Civil Movement of Blind People for Supporting the Implementation of Human Rights”. Amiran Ghoghadze, Editor of the Braille edition of “Light,” believes that it is of the utmost importance to preserve the rights of people with disabilities, as they have more problems than others. “Once we have been given a life, we have a right to lead a life equal to others,” he says in the movie.
“The Coloring Books” depicts an EU project with World Vision, in which social workers go into the streets and teach street children to read and write. Once they are on friendly terms with them, they also encourage them to paint and color books.
“In One Space” is about the project “Implementing Electronic Management in Self-Governments.” In a Gomi village a multifunctional Society Center was opened where people can receive different social services in just one building.
In 2012 the EU Delegation launched the first EU-3-minutes festival entitled, “The EU in my Neighborhood.” The winners were Lasha Meskhi from Kutaisi, Nino Bezhanidze from Batumi, and Tekle Kvaratskhelia from Tbilisi. The Delegation plans 3-minute films festivals for the future as well.
