Freedom & Unity Young Filmmaker Contest invites Vermont and New Hampshire residents to create films exploring the life and culture of the Green Mountain and Granite States.
Inspired by the Vermont Movie Project, FREEDOM & UNITY YOUNG FILMMAKER CONTEST invites young Vermont and New Hampshire residents to create films exploring the life and culture of the Green Mountain and Granite States. Through film, young people explore the issues that they find meaningful, make connections between the past and the present, and share their personal stories. They build filmmaking and communication skills while learning more about themselves and the state they call home.
One remarkable result of this project is the weaving together of many perspectives and stories. At the screening and awards ceremony, filmmakers gather together to meet each other, and learn from one another. WRIF (White River Indie Films) became the parent organization for the Freedom & Unity Contest in 2018 and is a proud supporter of youth filmmaking in the states of Vermont and New Hampshire.
