EarthxFilm Launches 2020 Youth Film Competition in Collaboration with Creative Visions, Instagram, and Planet911
EarthxFilm has launched its 2020 Youth Film Competition, the Planet911 Challenge, inviting youth aged 11 to 21 to post a 15- to 50-second video on Instagram tagging #Planet911Challenge and stating how they pledge to protect the planet. Presented in collaboration with Creative Visions, Instagram, and Planet911, this sixth EarthxFilm Youth Film Competition will award winning filmmakers up to $5000 in cash and prizes, including the opportunity to see their film screened at Earthx2020, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day in Dallas.
Currently open for submissions and voting through March 20, the Planet911 Challenge invites world citizens of all ages to cast their votes for the best film at Planet911.org. Planet911 provides youth with a platform for collaboration and sharing their voice. Together, EarthX and Planet911 encourage student filmmakers to be creative through film, music, spoken word, dance or whatever form of creative expression they choose, by offering them a global platform and the chance to shine on a public stage.
Winning filmmakers will be also be offered travel and accommodation to join 250 youth leaders from around the globe to participate in the March For Science Youth Summit at Earthx2020. The top 25 films will screen at EarthxFilm April 17 through 26 in Dallas, and filmmakers will be recognized at an Awards Ceremony, and have the rare opportunity to see THE WAY OF THE RAIN – HOPE FOR EARTH with Sibylle Szaggars Redford and Robert Redford.
Prizewinners will be determined by a combination of online votes in combination with ballots cast by a guest jury made up of industry experts and media professionals. "This is the most ambitious competition to-date with its goal of reaching 20 million views and garnering more than 500 films to share on our social platforms, while also screening as many films as possible at Earthx2020," said Emily Hargrove, co-founder of Planet911/EarthxFilm. "This is about amplifying the voices of youth from around the globe and changing behavior for the health of our planet."
