New global festival invites K-12 students to submit short films


Submissions are now open for the Global Student Voice Film Festival launched by EdTechTeam. For this English-language competition, K-12 students all around the world are invited to create a two-minute film responding to the theme “In Another’s Shoes.”

Students can either imagine an original story or produce a biography to convey their interpretation of the theme. You can find all the submission rules and guidelines here.

The final submission deadline is Monday, April 9 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time. Students who submit their entry before Wednesday, February 28 will receive feedback on eligibility and potentially — depending on the number of submissions received — on possible improvements.

Submissions will be divided into three categories for the judging: early ages (5-9 years old), middle ages (10-14 years old), and upper ages (15-18 years old). In addition to receiving certificates and trophies, winners will be invited to ISTE 2018 for the live screening and celebration on Tuesday, June 26.

The official website provides learning resources on video making.
