Open Invitation | DEAR ALBANIA Video/Photo Contest!

Remember last year's film project by Eliza Dushku on Albania
Well, she has announced an official video/photo contest with a December 15, 2013 11:59pm PST deadline. 
One of the film's major themes is that Albanians remain proud of their country, even when they do not live within the country's borders. We want to show Albanians bringing Albanian pride to their own homes and communities around the world. We need your help. We are looking for video or photos that will help tell this story. 
No matter the corner of the world you live in, you're more than welcome to participate by showing how you keep the Albanian spirit alive.
Do you teach an Albanian Language course? Or take one? Show us your Albanian class.
Have you taught your grandchildren your favorite Albanian dances? Show us a clip of their performance. 
Do you make Berek for your family dinners-- even if it's paired with local wine? Show us what your dinner table looks like. 
Do you have pictures in your home of your parents or grandparents? Show us! 
Where do you exhibit the Albanian double-headed eagle? Do you hang your Albanian flag on your brick faced Boston walk-up-- or inside the shop your parents have run for decades?
If you are interested in being in the movie, follow the official instructions for HD Video submissions (preferably) or old photos that depict the Albanian pride of previous generations throughout the world. The chosen entries will be featured in the film, receive credit in the end credits, and also be awarded a free copy of the final feature “Dear Albania.”
