This year our special prize will revolve around the “Millennials”(born between early 1980s and later) that have grown up constantly connected to the world on a global scale (through digital technology, social media and economic globalisation) and their relationship with the ongoing challenges facing humanity with a focus on climate change and environmental issues.
As a way to open a window into this paradigm, 2018’s special prize will be awarded to films that visually and cinematically explore questions such as:
-How do Millennials view society, our changing planet and our current economic system?
-How are they engaging themselves within the ongoing situation? Are they engaged or detached?
-How are they utilising new tools like social media to CONNECT and ACT?
-How are Millennials dealing with what is required from them emotionally, mentally, and within communities?
Potential topics are: Energy, consumption, media, inspiring transition (social and environmental), community, water.
