Calling all Georgia Filmmakers for Ripple Effect Project

ripple effect project

Now is the time for Georgia filmmakers of all ages and abilities to be part of a film project that demonstrates our connection to the ocean. Each day, we make decisions that ultimately impact our oceans. Our food choices, transportation choices, product purchases, energy use, water use and waste production all have an effect on our world’s oceans. Whether you live in the middle of a large landmass or close to a water source, you are having an impact.

Are you ready to tell a story through your film or Public Service Announcement to show how truly connected we are as a planet of people to our ocean’s? How can people take action, big or small to make a difference in their community?

Georgia residents, submit either a short film or Public Service Announcement by January 31, 2017 via Film Freeway. Finalists’ films will be showcased at the Blue Carpet Premiere in Athens, Georgia at the historic Morton Theater March 25, 2017.

A $2,000 cash prize and opportunity to have your film shown in local theaters are up for the taking,
