Movies are a great medium for raising awareness. They're relatively short, visually stimulating, and can be packed full of information — making them an easy and accessible way to inform people about current issues. Think: "Food, Inc.," "The Cove" and "King Corn."
That's why Brita FilterForGood
is hosting a contest
in which people can enter an idea for an environmental short film. Campus MovieFest
, the world's largest student film festival, is promoting the contest, encouraging students to submit ideas for environmental change for a chance to attend the Sundance Film Festival
. (The winner receives a free VIP trip to Sundance where he or she can view a screening of the environmental short film inspired by the original idea.) The deadline to submit ideas was Oct. 8 at noon, but you can still participate by voting on the ideas already submitted. Voting starts on Monday, Oct. 11 at 3 p.m. and lasts until Oct. 29 at midnight. Check out Brita FilterForGood's contest facebook page, and vote for your favorite film idea
