OUR WORLD IS ROUND
A 90min documentary to be distributed worldwide about
32 Independent Filmmakers following
32 Worldwide Fans supporting each of the 32 World Cup Teams,
But as with any knockout competition- there can only be one Winner!
We are searching the planet for 32 talented student or independent
filmmakers to compete for a place in what is possibly the biggest
global independent collaborative film project ever about soccer fans
and produce sections for a 90 min documentary feature film.
The score is this: each of the 32 filmmakers or production teams
need to follow one fan of one of the 32 qualifying nations for the
duration their teams last in the world cup. Your subject fan (could
even be yourself) should be passionate about football and be
following the World Cup in an extraordinary or special way. As soon
as the fan's team gets knocked out of the cup, he/r and the following
filmmaker drop out of the documentary. A final statement from
filmmaker and fan can be recorded but the producers wont accept any
additional footage after the team has left the tournament. You send
a copy of your tapes to the Our world is Round production team as
well as an edit log of preferred shots you want to see in the film
and then we splice the whole 90mins together with your section
