This year Brita has teamed up with The Sundance Institute and the Environmental Media Association (EMA) to host the FilterForGood Film Project– a film contest to invite people who are passionate about making the world a better place a chance to inspire a film and win a trip to the 2011 Sundance Film Festival to see the screening.
EMA Young Hollywood Board member, Emmanuelle Chriqui, is lending her voice to the project by helping raise awareness of how films can inspire a path to a healthier planet.
Now through October 8, FFT Readers can visit Brita FilterForGood on Facebook to submit an environmental challenge facing their community. Share a brief paragraph (150 words max) on the challenge and why a short film would creatively inspire others to make a difference.
Submissions will be voted on by the Facebook community and the top three most compelling stories will become the inspiration for short films directed by Sundance Film Festival filmmakers – Jeremy Konner, Amy Grappell and Destin Daniel Cretton – to be screened at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and air on the Sundance Channel.
