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.

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.

Use your imagination to place it in your story somehow.

Oh, and the film must be under 15 minutes in length.
