Possible Futures Film Contest

Deadline: 20 June 2011
Open to: everyone who wishes to participate with their message in 4 categories: Peace and Freedom, Fair Societies, Sustainability and Beyond, and Human Fulfillment
Awards: the filmmakers of 7 films will receive over $30,000 in prizes; the 1st Prize – $10,000 plus a trip the rainforest

The Possible Futures Film Contest is a bold new film event challenging storytellers of the world to create a new vision for the future of humanity — one that will become defined by our relationships to human justice, environmental sustainability, peace and individual fulfillment.

These stories on film, from citizens of the world, have the potential to highlight and envision change that benefits people, the planet and its ecosystems. There is an effort, in open-hearted consideration of one another, to bring forth a new path for the world — one of harmony, peace and love.

Creating your story is simple, and there is no entry fee. Everyone is encouraged to participate, at any skill level. Five world-class judges will select the top two Awards as viewers select five People’s Choice Awards.


Enter up to four films – one in each category: Peace and Freedom, Fair Societies, Sustainability and Beyond, and Human Fulfillment.


All storytellers of the world are invited to submit a film. Every country. Every age.  Every skill level. Every vision. Tell your story.


The filmmakers of 7 films will receive over $30,000 in prizes, with the top film receiving $10,000 and an excursion for 2 to the Rainforest.
