Inspired by the Vermont Movie Project, Freedom & Unity is a youth film contest that invites young Vermonters to create films that explore the life and culture of the Green Mountain State, both past and present. We’re excited to offer over $5000 in cash prizes, lots of cool filmmaking tools and a Youth Media Maker Conference! Over our first two years, we have drawn nearly 200 entries from high schools, tech centers, colleges, private schools, and home schools across the Green Mountain State. In addition, we have trained teachers to use video in the classroom and mentored students in a variety of settings. We invite all Vermonters to join us! Please make a film, mentor the filmmakers and/or help us by supporting the contest with gifts of cash or prizes. If you are interested in supporting our efforts, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
