How do we start to build a better world?
That was the question JDL’s Meijer Branch asked at the beginning of June, when they introduced their Build a Better World Short Film Contest.
Teens, ages 14 to 18, were given the task of creating a minute to a minute in a half short film that addressed this topic. Young filmmakers could be as creative as they liked, as long as all the footage was original.
Teens were also encouraged to use the free resources of the Meijer Branch Digital Studio. Filming equipment, editing software, and music recording was all available through the Digital Studio.
Entries were submitted no later than August 1, 2017.
Judging was done by the Meijer Branch Friends of the Library.
Here are the top 3 winners,
Congratulations to the winners and a big thank you to all who participated in helping JDL build a better world.
