One of the many suggestions that Manchester City Council and the “Steering Group” have ignored is to set up a video competition about what Manchester is doing/needs to do around climate change. But then, that would throw up some awkward gaps between their rhetoric and everyone else’s reality. While you’re waiting for them to do more than produce glossy booklets and nowt else, if you’re under 36, there’s this contest to enter…
Following the success of past editions, Connect4Climate and +60 Partners are launching the Film4Climate Global Video Competition, TODAY, Monday June 20 – see more at http://bit.ly/261oIVe.
Young filmmakers are invited to showcase their talents and create either a Public Service Advertisement (< 1 min) or a Short Film (1 – 5 minutes) about climate action. The competition is open to filmmakers from all over the world, ages 14 to 35, and the deadline to submit the video on the Film4Climate portal is September 15, 2016. Submit early to allow for public voting.
The film should show a personal climate change narrative and emphasize what people around the world are doing to promote action, offer new solutions, and inspire change. The jury, chaired by acclaimed Italian film director Bernardo Bertolucci, will select the winning entries based on content, technical expertise and innovation, and originality.
First prize will receive US$ 8,000, second prize US$ 5,000 and third US$ 2,000. Special prizes, offered by our sponsors, will also be awarded. The winners will be announced during the Conference of Parties (COP22) in Marrakesh, Morocco.
Following the signing of the Paris Agreement, and because of the growing urgency of climate change, we are hoping to receive submissions from all 174 signatory nations.
