OPPORTUNITIES: Does free speech matter? 2nd annual film contest (USA only)


Does free speech matter? Film your response, and win up to $1,000 and a free trip to New York City!

The National Coalition Against Censorship is sponsoring its second annual film contest. This year's topic is "Does Free Speech Matter?"

Contestants must be American residents, age 19 or younger, on the day the film is submitted. Entries can
be videos of any kind, including documentary, animation, experimental, and music, on DVD or VHS format, no longer than 4 minutes, including credits.

Films will be judged on content, artistic and technical merit, and creativity. Judges will be drawn from a panel of renowned writers, actors, and filmmakers, similar to last year's judges, who included author Judy Blume and playwright Tony Kushner. The top three winners will receive stipends of $1,000, $500, and $250 and be flown to New York City for a gala event in October.

All entries should be mailed to NCAC Film Contest, 275 7th Avenue, 9th floor, New York, NY 10001 and
postmarked NO LATER THAN Monday, August 15, 2005. For more information, visit www.yfen.org, or write to Stephanie Elizondo Griest at filmcontest@ncac.org.
