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.
