Take A Creative Approach to Film Making
Adobe Youth Voices, PBS and POV are searching for the next generation of documentary filmmakers. Project VoiceScape welcomes good ideas, films-in-progress or completed short films made by aspiring filmmakers in grades 7–12. Fifteen young people will be selected for Project VoiceScape and will be honored in Fall 2011 at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. All subjects, styles and opinions are welcome. The film projects should get people talking, take a fresh and creative approach to filmmaking, express a clear point of view, address issues Americans are talking about, take a thoughtful approach to the topic, showcase the lives of people rarely seen on television and examine issues that are important in students’ communities. The 15 young filmmakers selected for Project VoiceScape will receive $2,000 to complete their short documentary; streaming of their film on POV’s Web site; one-to-one mentoring by award-winning documentary filmmakers; outreach, publicity and fundraising training from experts at POV; and possible broadcast in the POV Short Film Showcase.
Deadline: February 15, 2011 for submissions
