2012 Theme: Going environ-MENTAL: Cool Tricks to Solve Climate Change
The 3rd annual Everyday Heroes film festival takes place from April 13 – 22, 2012, reaching over two million viewers a day. Unique in North America, the festival plays on Onestop’s TTC subway platform screens in Toronto, and on screens in malls across Canada. All official selections will also be featured on the Everyday Heroes Festival website.
Each year, at the same time Earth Week is celebrated around the world, we showcase truly unique and wholly creative one-minute eco-films. New this year, the festival is now focused on Canadian youth, and the theme of Climate Change.
Our actions are changing our climate in a way that is negatively affecting our health and the ability of some parts of the world to meet the basic necessities of life (food, clothing, shelter). Show us a cool trick you think could help solve climate change or tell us about someone who’s already doing something about it. Either way, we want to know what you think and give you the chance to win some great prizes!
Submissions must be 60 seconds and silent. You must be living in Canada and between the age of 13 and 24 to take part in this Festival. Submission is free.
Everyday Heroes Festival is produced by Onestop Media Group, Art for Commuters, Earth Day Canada, Planet in Focus Environmental Film Festival, and the NFB Mediatheque. Prizes sponsored by Aeroplan.
