Green Party call­ing all bud­ding film-mak­ers

Bray People - - News -

WITH a thriv­ing film school in the heart of the town, Bray is in with a good chance of tak­ing home top prize in a con­test aimed at pro­mot­ing green mes­sages.

The Green Party has launched a com­pe­ti­tion for film-mak­ers and an­i­ma­tors, who are asked to sub­mit short videos. First prize is €1,000 and the win­ner will be se­lected by del­e­gates at the Party’s Con­ven­tion in March 2009.

‘We are looking for ma­te­rial from the next gen­er­a­tion of film­mak­ers and an­i­ma­tors, who will bring to life key green mes­sages with power, orig­i­nal­ity and hu­mour,’ said Min­is­ter for the En­vi­ron­ment John Gorm­ley.

The videos can cover a wide range of sub­jects like com­mu­nity action, en­ergy ef­fi­ciency, sus­tain­able trans­port, green life­style, lo­cal food and cli­mate change.

The short-listed en­tries will be those with the most views on the Green Party’s YouTube Chan­nel. The clos­ing date for en­tries is Mon­day Fe­bru­ary 16, and the two videos with the most YouTube views at 5 p.m. on Wed­nes­day March 4 will be short-listed and voted on by del­e­gates at the Green Party’s Na­tional Con­ven­tion in Wex­ford in March.
