It is with great joy that we announce FORGET ME NOT as the selected Videocamp Film Fund – 2018 edition, the first with an international scope.
The project of Olivier Bernier, New York based director of Rota6 Films, will receive $ 400,000 for the production of a film about Inclusive Education.
“Forget Me Not” delves into the challenges faced by children with disabilities in public education. The starting point is the personal life of the director, who discovered at the time of childbirth that his son had Down syndrome.
The finalists pitched their projects to the jury (learn more by clicking here) on September 12. The five shortlisted projects showed a sensible approach in preparing the proposals that focused on broadening the social perception about the positive impacts of inclusion for all students. It was a tough decision.
We believe that the chosen project is in line with Videocamp’s values, and that the film will be key to inspire change, with great potential to transform the views of policy makers and the audience about the importance of inclusive education.
We are grateful for the participation and trust of all shortlisted directors who have been with us throughout this process and show our appreciation to all submissions to this edition.
Keep changing the world together.

"This is not just another story - it's the story of my life. When I was a child, I did not go to an inclusive school. I was never exposed to anyone with intellectual disabilities and I was ill prepared for my own son's arrival. I want to use this opportunity to make sure this never happens to anyone again."
