Call for Talented Liberian Film Makers

The European Union and the Bureau of National Fisheries (BNF) are looking for original creative voices in Liberia to create stunning short films on Liberian fisheries. We offer a unique opportunity to improve your skills with professional equipment and development workshops, a $500 production budget and the chance to win a $500 prize for the best film!

These are exciting times for Liberian fisheries! Our fish stocks are the healthiest in the Region, Liberian fishermen are landing more fish than ever to help feed our country, and  the first year of a successful Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreement with the European Union has been completed, bringing in significant revenues for the Government of Liberia which will support the development of the country.

A new, autonomous National Fisheries and Aquaculture Agency was created by Liberia’s legislature last month paving the way for new sustainable investment in Liberia’s fisheries. The BNF, in anticipation of this new opportunity, has been developing a guide to promote sustainable investments in Liberia’s fisheries that can promote economic development and better livelihoods for Liberian fishermen.
