Only a few days remaining to send in your short film to the Connect4Climate competition
- Filmmakers aged between 14 and 35 can take part in the contest. The jury comprises Bernardo Bertolucci, Wim Wenders, Atom Egoyan and Mika Kaurismaki, among others
1 April marks the deadline for sending in your own short documentary film to the competition announced by Connect4Climate. Directors aged between 14 and 35 can take part in the contest (which is split into two groups: 14-17 years old; and 18-35 years old), either individually or in groups of a maximum of five people.
The documentaries must last between one and twelve minutes, and they must feature climate change as their subject. Up for grabs are awards of up to $15,000 for the adult directors, and video equipment and software for the younger participants. The winning films will also be screened at the most important international festivals and will be available to watch on the MTV Voices platform.
The jury comprises representatives from international organisations that are active in the climate sector, as well as globally renowned directors and producers like Bernardo Bertolucci, Wim Wenders, Atom Egoyan, Mika Kaurismaki, Marc Foster and Fernando Mereilles, among others.
