It may be essential for life and a resource many of us take for granted, but clean, running water is something that many in the world do not have. EBRD projects past and present have done a lot to address that shortcoming; in some of the Bank’s countries of operations, particularly those in Central Asia, our investments in infrastructure have improved the quality and security of water supplies for thousands of people.

But access to water remains a big issue. That’s why we’re focusing on water in a new film-making competition being run by TVE and part-sponsored by the EBRD. The Biomovies competition, now in its second year, invites proposals for short films. Shortlisted finalists receive a US$300 budget to produce a finished film and the overall winners get a larger cash prize. Winners may also see their work screened at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Durban in December 2011.
