C’mon Baby, Light My Earth

Short and sweet – that’s how we like our films. Okay, maybe not all of them, but if they are the result of competitions like Light Up Earth then short films (5 to 7 mins to be exact) are alright by us!

So… if you have a burning desire to protect the earth (we do!), are creatively handy with a camera and want to win $6000, all the while helping us humans appreciate the precious resource that is Earth, then why not enter the greenest new film competition around? Just because it’s a serious subject, doesn’t mean the ‘treatment’ needs to be. Drama, comedy, horror, sci-fi, documentary, mockumentary, music video, animation and experimental are all fine, as long as the film focuses on Earth as the lifeblood of humanity – and the action we can take to save it. Jane Campion (director of The Piano) showed her support by saying “It is a very generous prize for short filmmakers and really a challenge to make good propaganda and stay honest.”
