Combining a traditional student film festival with a powerful online platform built for video-driven social impact film campaigns, the UPTOGOOD Impact Film Festival asks students (high school, college and film school students nationwide) to produce short video / films that can catalyze positive social change. The festival entries are submitted in the form of impact film campaigns via UPTOGOOD.org, which provides viewers an opportunity to easily share and act on stories about social issues and solutions.

 

 

The festival is produced in partnership with New Roads School – a highly regarded K-12 college preparatory school in Los Angeles focused on social justice, film and the arts. The festival will be held on their campus in Los Angeles at their beautiful amphitheater as well as online (nationwide) on Saturday, April 22, 2017.

 

 

 

 

Partners to date include: POV, Picture Motion, SIMA, Creative Visions, CMSI, Goldhirsh Foundation, Harmony Institute, Media Institute for Social Change, Net Impact, The Global Media Center for Social Impact and many more!

 

The deadline for submissions is 3/22!
