Short & Strong Student Film Competition for Young People about Immigrants in their Lives

We are ecstatic to announce The Cortos Y Fuertes / Short & Strong Student Film Competition, sponsored by the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor and UNITE HERE.

Short and Strong is a film competition meant to create a space for youth to tell their immigrant stories.

This student film competition is meant for students of all ages. We want youth to be creative and resourceful, using whatever means accessible to create their stories (even cell phones). The youth of this country is one of the strongest we have; it’s time to let that voice be heard.

We will have three age categories: 13 and below, 14 to 17, and 18 and over (so long as the individual is a student in high school, a GED program, community college, undergraduate graduate degree program or graduate degree program). There will be a 1st and 2nd place prize for each category, as well as a Most Viewed and Best Overall prize.

This is not only a chance for participants to win cash prizes, but it is excellent opportunities to have their voices reach a distinguished panel of judges. These judges include Rosario Dawson, Dolores Huerta, Antonio Villaraigosa, Esai Morales, Danny Trejo and many more….

Cortos y Fuertes film contest is a joint project of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO and UNITE HERE.

Submissions are done online at www.shortandstrong.com and are due September 20, 2013.
