Submit your video to the Media the Matters showcase

Media That Matters…is unlike most in its insistence on community screenings throughout the world. The stories are humane, emotionally rich and often humorous despite the heavy subject matter.” — The Indypendent

Screen. Act. Impact.

Arts Engine celebrates ten years of Media That Matters — the premier showcase for short films with big messages.

Hundreds of thousands of people including educators, activists and nonprofits will watch and use your film. Submit your short film to make a real impact.

  • Short Films: The shorter the better — no longer than 12 minutes max, but 8 and under would be great!
  • Social Issues: Any and all issues will be considered. This year we are focusing on Media Literacy, Human Rights, LGBTQ & Sexual Identity, Youth Activism and International issues.
  • All Genres: Documentary, animation, public service announcement, narrative, music video, drama, comedy. Creativity is encouraged — but your film must focus on a social issue.
  • All ages: Youth-produced projects encouraged!

MUST be cleared for NONEXCLUSIVE home video, educational, online, broadcast and theatrical distribution.

Deadline: All submission materials must be postmarked by January 22, 2010.
