Last year’s debut of the SikhNet Youth Film Festival was a huge success and so, we’re doing it again this year! The Second Annual young filmmaker’s competition for Sikh Youth is designed to encourage and inspire our youth to get involved in media and video and use their creativity to produce interesting and inspiring short films filled with the spirit of Sikhi. And this year, we’ve added a New Senior Division so that filmakers older than 25 are able to participate as well.
Most people in the world don’t know who Sikhs are or what we are all about, nor have they experienced our Chardhi Kalaa spirit! This unique event is a great way to publicize the experience of Sikhi and Sikh identity and give people the experience of our spirit, values and culture. Our hope is that this educational and fun event will allow people to get involved in the world of film and media and continue to use it for the benefit of the Sikh community.
So grab that video camera and come to SikhNet
for the Second Annual Young Filmmaker’s Competition!
Junior Division (11-17 years old)
Intermediate Division (18-25 years old)
Senior Division (26 – 126 years old)
Help spread the word about this event by printing out flyers, or displaying a Film Festival button on your website.
Senior Division (26-35) winners are not eligible for cash prizes (we want to give those to the younger generation) but all the winning films from the Senior Division will be publicized and screened on SikhNet, so give your film career a boost and enter your work!
