OPPORTUNITIES / GRANTS: Calling all youth filmmakers!

Subject: Calling all youth filmmakers!

Have you been thinking about the environment in which you live?  If so, we'd like to consider hiring you to make a film.

Listen Up! and Adobe Youth Voices announces Beyond Green, an international film project that will ask youth filmmakers worldwide, ages 13-19, to produce short personal stories that answer two important questions:

How do you and people in your community interact with the environment? Is there a better way?

We'll help you make a great film.  In fact, we are prepared to provide selected organizations a $10,000 production award and lots of support.  

Listen Up! wants filmmakers and people concerned with their environment to think beyond green and grasp original ideas that reflect the physical and cultural environments that they live in. We encourage youth to investigate environment considerations for themselves, to add their voices to mainstream media.

Visit for all of the details.

Applications go online May 31st, but you can sign up for an application reminder now.  

Our mission at Listen Up! is to help youth be heard in the mass media, contributing to a culture of free speech and social responsibility. Listen Up! is a national Youth Media Network that helps youth producers and their adult mentors exchange work, share ideas and learn from one another.
