Student Film Project

Do you like films?  Do you care about the environment?  Have you ever thought about combining the two?  Now is your chance!  We’re excited to open the call for submissions for the 2014 Student Film Project contest!

SFP Flier 2014

GLP Films’ Student Film Project contest invites students to pick up a camera and create their own short films documenting sustainability-related stories in their school, home, or community.  Whether telling the story of a healthy food revolution on campus, a local wildlife rehabilitation center, environmental restoration at a local reserve, the sustainability efforts of an individual, or dozens of other empowering sustainability stories, students have the opportunity to make a difference by documenting and sharing the positive stories of sustainability in their communities.

Films should be under 5 minutes in length and may address any sustainability related topic.  The contest is open to middle school through graduate students and can be produced solo or by a group.  The possibilities are endless, so get creative!

Winners of the contest will receive a prize package valued at $500 from some of the world’s most popular sustainable brands.  Winning films will also be screened at select GLP and partner events throughout the year.  The next winner could be you, so get started today!

Please visit our Resources & Tips and Submission Rules pages for complete submission details.

Regular contest deadline:  May 30, 2014

*Early submission deadline:  March 14, 2014 - Submissions received by March 14, 2014 that are less than 3 minutes in length and fit the documentary/reporter style will also be submitted to our partners, National Wildlife Federation, for their Young Reporters for the Environment Contest for a chance to win additional prizes!  We’ll take care of the submission details, just get your film to us by the early submission deadline if you want to qualify for both contests!
