I found this out, in my quest to find out ways people can connect with social awareness issues and do their bit to be aware, spread the awareness and encourage support.
The Peacock Project and MAM Movies are coming together to launch a film project where youth will be invited to create a short film based on a local Mumbai charity organization within a short period of 101 hours. This short film will capture the organization’s mission, their achievements as well as difficulties that they face. The filmmakers will also attempt to capture on film, the heart of the people who are making the organization work and are making a difference in the world.
The goal is – through the medium of stories – to strike a cord within filmmakers to inspire and make films that matter. It also gives the filmmakers and other youths an opportunity to connect with local charities, who have dedicated their lives for the betterment of the society. These films can be used by the charities to create awareness and inspiration among their current and future donors and volunteers.
Some of the 101 Charities they are working with are CRY, PETA, SPCA, MAKE A WISH FOUNDATION, SMILE, HELEN KELLER INSTITUE……
In a society that appreciates films as a medium, the opportunity for the filmmakers to get involved with such issues is indeed bound to have interesting results. Let us all pitch in, and see what we could do to help.
You can help us spread the word among filmmakers who would like to make these films, youth, publications, bloggers, websites from around the world. Because this is a complete grassroot level competition any help with sponsorship is much appreciated.
