Haven’t started filming yet? No problem! You still have 2 weeks to create an original video. Act quickly, and you’ll have a chance to win $1500 and have your film premiered at the Sikh Art and Film Festival in November!
This year’s topic:
My Crown - My Faith
How does it feel to be a Sikh? Why don’t you try! Walk a mile in our shoes!
Film-makers are encouraged to create a 5 minute video (or less) which depicts a non-Sikh adorning/wearing a Sikh turban for a day, and presenting himself/herself as a Sikh. The turban is a Sikh article of faith, and should always be treated with respect. The film should capture the reactions of passersby, friends, and family members. Pre and post interviews with main characters are encouraged.
All entries must be received by September 30, 2012. No film experience is required to participate, and people of all ages are encouraged to submit videos.
