Youth Film Challenge (Civic Life Project)

April 30, 2018
May 22, 2018
The Civic Life Project invites high school and college students to submit a 4- to 8-minute documentary films about a public issue that they care about for the third annual Youth Film Challenge.
Hate speech, mistrust between police and minority youth, students' First Amendment rights, reducing gun violence -- these are topical headlines. However, how often do we view these stories through the lens of high school students? A highly esteemed panel of jurors, including Dan Rather, Bill Moyers, Keli Goff, and Lynn Sherr have agreed to review and judge all finalist entries. The award winning short films will be presented at a special Gala Screening at the Bushnell Theater in Hartford, Connecticut and are slated to be streamed on Facebook Live on May 22, 2018. The top three winners will win cash prizes.
