To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the WOMAD Festival a dvd will be produced of its history and 5 x 10 minute films by different directors about the festival in 2007.
Each film director will deliver a unique 10 minute piece relating to the Womad festival. Under the Done and Dusted wing of Hamish Hamilton directors will be sought to deliver treatment/script of their idea.
Directors will be encouraged to think outside the box whilst sticking to the brief of relating to the WOMAD Festival.

Chosen films will be commissioned and delivered to end up on a DVD celebrating 25 years of WOMAD.

We are looking for unique viewpoints and will welcome brilliant ideas that embrace the infinite possibilities of connected stories. WOMAD Festival is about world music, arts and dance.

Every race, age and sex welcome. Ideas by 0900 on the 18 July please.
