Students from local primary schools will gather at the Manx Museum next Tuesday evening 20th May 2014 for the showcase screening and award ceremony for the It’s Not Fair! One World Centre Short Film Competition 2014.
The competition, which is run with help from Mannin Shorts and generously sponsored by Sure, challenges primary school children to make a film of no more than four minutes on the subject of It’s Not Fair!, interpreted in a global context. Last year’s entries included films on topics as varied as fair trade, child soldiers, global poverty and deforestation.
His Excellency Lieutenant Governor Adam Wood, patron of the One World Centre, will be in attendance and will present the award for Best Film overall. Rosemary Clarke, One World Centre Director, said, “It’s an exciting night for the students who get to present their films on a big screen in front of a big audience.
“Last year’s finalists were able to surprise us with their imaginative entries and showed a lot of empathy with children living in different circumstances elsewhere in the world. We will all be looking forward to the opening of the golden envelopes and seeing who the winners are this year!”
