Do you have a short film about a social issue that people need to see? Consider submitting your film to the Ninth Annual Media That Matters Film Festival. Winning entries will be included in the Media That Matters global campaign which includes DVD distribution, broadcasts, streamings, and community screenings around the world. You’ll also receive a $1000 cash prize. Entries can be of any genre and can be about any social issue. Submissions must be postmarked by January 9.
And if you’re looking to shed light on an important issue, consider making a short film about it. Check out this wikiHow page on how to make a movie. It oversimplifies the process, but offers some good tips to get you started!
If you’re not about to become a filmmaker, you can still look for screenings in your area, watch films online, or even bring a screening to your community.
