The Global Student Voice Film Festival is a competition for students ages 5-18. Hosted by the Student Voice Organization, of which Jennie Magiera is president, this contest is in its second year. Last year’s theme was, “In Another’s Shoes,” and I highly encourage you to view the winners. For the 2018-2019 contest, students will create 60 second films with the theme of, “Activating Change.” You can access the rules here. Of particular note is the optional Dec. 17th deadline. Entries received by that date will receive feedback from the judges, and be given the opportunity to revise their films to be turned by April 9th. Participants who don’t meet the December deadline have a hard deadline of February 18th.
The goal of this contest is to amplify student voices, but it is also to reinforce respect for intellectual properties, so any use of images, video, or music in the film that are not created by the contestants are subject to strict copyright guidelines.
If you have students who are passionate about film production and/or making a difference, the Global Student Voice Film Festival would be a great project for them.
