CALL FOR FILMS
The 2021/2022 Ripple Effect Film Project theme is Healthy Water, Healthy World. Clean water is essential for all people, our environment, our communities, and our homes. Create a short film that fits into one of these four categories.
ELIGIBILITY: This contest is open to Pre-K through 12th-grade filmmakers of all experience levels in Athens-Clarke County and neighboring counties.
What is the Ripple Effect Film Project?
Local K-12 students have the opportunity to write, produce, and star in short, water-themed films. The annual event puts out a call for films each fall, with films due in January of the following year. The submissions are narrowed down to the finalist round, then judged on creativity, originality, technical skill, and message content. The finalists' films are shown on the big screen during the Blue Carpet Premiere, where the winners are announced and cash prizes awarded.
The festival's theme changes each year slightly but always involves water and opportunities to incorporate the Georgia Standards of Excellence into the production. There is no fee to submit a film. This makes a great class project!
