Call for Entries, View Change Film Contest, an online competition to find powerful new stories about the progress related to the United Nations Millennium Development Goals:

"We want powerful five-minute films that tell stories of progress in developing countries. What are people doing to help end poverty, disease, hunger, conflict, inequality, and illiteracy? Show us the progress being made towards achieving the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Your film can win the $20,000 Grand Prize, be shown on Link TV and other TV channels worldwide, and can inspire action and change!"

Hello Lydia

Hello Lydia,
Thanks for this information. I need some clarification please, Is the film to show your work on Empowerment, Innovation
etc? or the film producers that could get films on the progress in the developing countries on some work done by government sponsored by United Nations Millenium Development Goals.
Thanks again

sumbit your own film and win!

Hi Busayo,
I'm not affiliated with the contest, so I don't know much about it. I would suggest going to this link:

From what I do understand though, anyone can enter a 5-minute film they've made about one of the pre-selected categories (sustainability, innovation, overcoming conflict, empowerment, leadership & governance and local/global partnerships). From talking to Scott at the World Pulse office (I volunteer there) I think the work you are doing with the empowerment workshop would make for a perfect subject for the "empowerment" category.

The links above offer a lot of information about how to make a film and what they are looking for, so hopefully your questions will be answered. If not, please let me know and I will work with you to find the answers. Good luck!
