We have a great new opportunity for all aspiring filmmakers, video journalists and new media makers. In partnership with the PBS show American Experience, which is airing the film Stonewall Uprising next spring, we are asking you for videos that tell us the story about the gay rights movement happening today in your community. Help us share new views of this important civil rights story by contributing your own.
Your video could be one of five to win a $1000 prize and maybe even a chance to air on PBS after the film. Video submissions will become part of a contest and guest judges, including prominent gay rights advocates Cyndi Lauper and Dan Savage, will help decide who wins. The deadline for submissions is February 14, 2011. Find out more about the application process and what makes a winning video on the open call home page.
We can’t wait to see your story about the efforts happening today for gay civil rights.
