Hello Filmmakers!!

Back by popular demand, we are launching a NEW short film competition!!

As you may know, we are approaching the worldwide Earth Day on April 22nd. We would like to show our appreciation by having YOU, our very talented emerging filmmakers out there, help us spread the message of sustainability. We are all aware of the climate crisis, the pollution, and the deforestation happening on our home planet. We need as many voices as possible to stand for our silent Earth. And THAT is the gift of filmmaking. We can give a voice to the voiceless.

What is sustainability? We want to see you get creative creating a short film!

How to Take Part:

First: Shoot a film following all these conditions:

  • It can’t be longer than 60 seconds
  • It must feature something broken
  • It must create your film around the theme of sustainability

Second: Post the completed film on Instagram, including @raindancefilmfestival and the hashtag #SixtySustainableSeconds

E.g.: Hey @raindancefilmfestival, here’s my #SixtySustainableSeconds

Submissions close at midnight, Sunday 19 April, 2020.

The Fine Print

  • Submissions under 60 seconds will be accepted,

Bailey Graham is responsible for the various dad jokes you see scattered across our social media at Raindance. Not only is she the marketing and media, but she also has won multiple competitions through adobe and is pursuing her own film and photography projects. If she had a dime for every time she was seen with her camera, that would be an incredible coincidence.
