About the Movies and Music:
 
HOPE

Similar to the past three years of the Elfenworks CMF Social Justice Award, deliver a film which tells the story of a person in America who has overcome poverty, inequality or social injustice, bringing home a personal tale of triumph in the face of adversity in a way that will open ears, hearts and minds.  Highlight people who inspire and give hope to others through their actions.  Showcase the tales of those who are not afraid to stare down social injustice and make an impact. 

 
RIPPLE MAKERS

Deliver a film which brings home the story of someone or some group that, unwilling to be overcome by the problem, tackles it.  Tell the tale of visionaries who are doing something to create a positive change.  As Lauren Speeth, CEO of The Elfenworks Foundation explains, "We’ll always consider films that tell the story about how NOBODY should underestimate their ability to make a ripple of positive change."  This has been our most popular topic, and we invite you to tell us about the heroes in your community.

 
HORROR (Newly added theme)

Deliver a film which brings home the horror of [name your social injustice here] and thus brings us face to face with our unwillingness to seepoverty, inequality or social injustice.  Ever wonder why so many people say there's no poverty problem in America? A Stanford study shows more people were in denial about poverty after Hurricane Katrina coverage than before, despite government reports that one in seven Americans (49 million) regularly struggle to get enough food to eat.  Are we afraid that the problem is too big to fix, that if we look we'll have to help, or that the same thing could happen to us?  We're throwing down the gauntlet to you students, to explore the concept of how fear makes us blind to realities, possibilities and hope... and we are quaking in FEAR of what you might show us. 

 
SPECIAL MENTION: ARTISTIC AND MESSAGE

Let your imagination soar and think of artistic and creative ways to portray your message.  As always we're looking for the very best and brightest, and as always Elfenworks and CMF this year and in future years reserve the right to postpone the deadline if nothing of the level of previous years is submitted.
