NO BULLIES HERE

SPECIAL CATEGORY THEME

NO BULLIES HERE – This is a special LLICFF category for individuals and schools that can choose to use this as their film’s theme. There is no obligation to do so, entries will be accepted for all concepts. However bullying is not nice and you might have a creative idea that can unveil some of the issues around bullying.

Think of the term NO BULLIES HERE as a signpost. A place where no bullies are allowed, like a signpost at the entry to your school, or your town, or city.

Imagine a massive billboard that read

NO BULLIES HERE

Imagine a sign on the fence of your school that read

NO BULLIES HERE

Imagine there were no bullies anywhere!

Have you had an experience about bullying? Have you or one of you friends been bullied? This is an opportunity to make a film and tell your story so that others can understand.

And…your film could be seen on the BIG SCREEN and even win the SPECIAL LIGHT AWARD ‘NO BULLIES HERE’ prize and be seen around the world.

The only condition is that somewhere in your film we must see a sign that reads NO BULLIES HERE. But how you do that can be as simple as putting it on a tiny piece of paper, or as big as the sky.

Use your imagination to place it in your story somehow.

Oh, and the film must be under 10 minutes in length.

DO YOU LIVE NEAR BELGRAVE?

You might like to point your camera at Belgrave. The Belgrave Traders Association want to see young people making their films in Belgrave, and have offered a prize for the best film that creatively shows Belgrave is the setting. Get shooting for that award and…
