For submission into the 2021 Youth Action Film Festival, your film must follow one of these prompts.
The year 2020 was one of unprecedented turbulence and widespread change. From the effects of COVID-19 to the aftermath of the U.S. presidential election results, it’s hard to deny that 2020 will be remembered long after it occurred. This year, we ask filmmakers to consider the disillusionment, the enlightenment, the gratefulness, and the reimagining brought on by 2020.
There are 3 prompts to choose from:
How did 2020 change the way we see the world?
Consider how 2020 revealed new insights about the world around you, whether they were rude awakenings or something more positive. We invite you to respond by showcasing how 2020 affected the way a certain issue is perceived.
How did 2020 change the way we see ourselves?
Capture the realizations that you gained about yourself (or that others gained about themselves) because of the events of 2020. We invite you to respond by showcasing how the past year affected your or someone else’s outlook on life.
How have young people responded to the effects of 2020?
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 an issue created or exacerbated by 2020.
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.
