Call To Local Filmmakers
FWFF, LEF Foundation, and Tilt Media are partnering this spring to offer a free film training program to young women ages 14 to 19 in the Bay area. Young women will have the opportunity to create public service announcements to inspire social change. This year's film projects will focus on GOING GREEN locally and globally. Youth films will show the public how simple life changes can help save the planet. Films created in the program will screen at this year's festival in April as part of the GENERATION NEXT: Films made By Youth for Youth.No filmmaking experience necessary. Deadline for applications is on 1/25.

Films selected will be shown at the Regal Arbor Cinema in Austin, Texas on March 24th, 2008 as a benefit for the National Partnership for Women and Families.

Entry deadline is February 29th, 2008.

4. The film cannot contain any scenes which might be construed as pornographic.

8. There is no submission fee.

9. You may enter as many films as you want, but you must fill out an entry form for each film.
