For submission into the 2020 Youth Action Film Festival, your film must follow one of these prompts.
Our world has become more turbulent than ever, and many have sought to better it by addressing various issues. In recent years, the amount of youth seeking to make a positive difference has risen. This year, submitted films are to be about such youth and examine how they have worked to create an impact.
There are 3 prompts to choose from:
Explore an example of a young person (or group of young people) who has/have persisted through profound adversity caused by social, environmental, or political issues.
Capture the experiences and hardships that a young person (or group of young people) has faced as they tried to solve an issue they care about. We invite you to respond by sharing a story about how a young person or group of young people faced a challenge and overcame it.
How has a group of young people or a young person used their talents to showcase their views on the world? (art, writing, performance, etc.)
Consider your talents and how you use them to create something in this world that shows who you are and what makes you unique. We invite you to respond by showcasing an individual’s skills and hobbies and how they used them to express their outlook on life.
Examine a case of a young person (or group of young people) advocating for change on a significant social, environmental, or political issue.
With so many problems present in our world, young people are just as involved in these matters as adults. We invite you to tell a story about how a young individual (or group of young people) has tried to address a current issue.
Youth Action Film Festival is asking you to consider these prompts carefully and create a mindful video that answers one of these questions. Inappropriate videos will not be considered for judging.
