German Technical Cooperation Tender Notice
Advisory and line-production services for a competition for short film projects on women entrepreneurs in India

GIZ is a company owned by the German Federal Government. As a federal enterprise, GIZ supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development in more than 130 countries worldwide. Energy, Environment and Sustainable Economic Development are the three main focal area of GIZ’s work in India.

The Government of India regards the promotion of entrepreneurship as a key mechanism for achieving its goals of sustainable economic growth and employment creation. To this end it is promoting existing businesses and business start-ups under several newly launched state programmes. The government is placing a particular focus on supporting hitherto disadvantaged groups, especially women. Under its ‘Sustainable Economic Development’ thematic area, GIZ is implementing the project ‘Economic Empowerment of Women Entrepreneurs and Start-ups by Women’ (WEE) on behalf of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The project seeks to support the Indian Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MoSDE) in improving the overall framework conditions for women-led businesses in India in order to increase the share of women entrepreneurs in the country.

One component of the WEE project is a film- and media campaign. Its objective is to raise awareness and to increase recognition/acceptance of women entrepreneurship in Indian society. By tackling mindsets and gender stereotypes, the campaign contributes to improving the framework conditions for women entrepreneurs on a structural level. One essential part of campaign will be a short film competition and the subsequent production and screening of the winner films with moderated discussions.

In this regard, GIZ proposes to award a contract for advisory and line-production services with regard to this film competition. The contractor will be responsible for elaborating a detailed concept, preparing the Call for Proposals and share it within relevant networks of established film makers, film producers and potentially film schools. After the winning film proposals have been selected, the contractor will oversee the production processes as a line-producer.

Shortlisted bidders will be asked to come in for a short presentation of their proposal and relevant portfolio.
