Filmmakers from around the world who focus on social issues can enter a contest.
The Media That Matters Film Festival highlights short films on the most important topics of the day for local, global, and online communities with the goal of engaging audiences and inspiring them to take action.
Now in its 11th edition, any and all issues will be considered. This year, however, organizers are particularly interested in films focusing on disability rights, interfaith dialogue and religious tolerance, bias-based bullying, gender equality and youth activism. The contest is open to documentaries, narratives, animations, music videos, public service announcements, dramas, comedies and other hybrid types of films. You can watch last year's winners here.
