I’m sorry this is a little bit of short notice, but in case anyone is interested, a friend told me about this film festival that is currently accepting submissions. I think the idea is really cool and could lead to a really meaningful and inspirational summer project.
Here’s some details:
From the earthquake in Haiti to the Gulf Oil Spill, environmental
disasters are currently at the forefront of world news. In response, explore.org, a non-profit multi-media organization, has recently created the the explore/HATCH Short Film Award to be given to a filmmaker who best tells the story of a remarkable individual’s actions in response to a devastating environmental event.
Our goal? To spread awareness of disasters and bring recognition to those selfless heroes who are making a difference.
Submissions for the film are due August 25th. The winner will receive a full expense paid trip to HATCHfest Bozeman (Sept 22 – 25, 2010), and a prize from explore founder and documentary filmmaker Charles Annenberg Weingarten.
