Call for entries for the 2nd Annual Social Issue Media Festival
I'm excited to share with you news of our extended call for entries for the 2nd Annual Social Issue Media Festival -- now due February 14th! Last year, we featured ten films produced by educators, graduate students, and researchers from the Columbia University community (collection can be found here: http://bit.ly/gzN0II). This year, we have opened up the festival to the world (!) and we are actively seeking socially conscious media submissions from media makers around the globe -- amateurs to pros, diy-ers to video geeks, and everyone in between. We hope to curate a festival that once again promotes nuanced and thoughtful dialogue about a range of issues that are of interest to a wide audience. In particular, we hope to push the conversation about education inside and outside of school, especially at a time when classrooms, schools, and curricula have a starring role in a number of popular documentary films.
Please consider submitting an entry for this year's media festival -- and please share this announcement far and wide with your friends, students, colleagues, communities, and beyond! (Social media embed options available on our website: http://www.socialissuemediafest.org/contact-us)
Warm wishes for a happy and healthy 2011!
