GAP is an environmental charity on a mission to help people make the connection between what is good for them and good for the planet. They believe that tackling climate change requires a revolution in the way we fulfil our true needs - how we define success as a society. This is very much in line with albert's Planet Placement and the editorial part of the albert course so it is a really nice tie-in for your students. Flickers of the Future calls on young filmmakers to tell a different story - one where humans and the planet thrive together. Alongside Richard Curtis and a host of incredible film experts, evironmentalists and futurists, GAP is inviting filmmakers who are under 25 to tell a different story - one where humans and planet thrive together. Shorlisted concepts will be judges by an expert panel, youth audiences and representatives from major broadcasters. The winning story will be supported through production with £100K funding and guidance from the expert panel.  Sign-up info for lecturers is in the attached document to receive further details about the competition as well as online training materials and resources that will enable you to deliver workshops to inspire your students as well as an online versions for students to connect with directly.

There may also be a GAP hosted webinars coming up. Basically, register your interest and you will be sent resources as and when they become available. Additionally, GAP would like to visit some Welsh and Scottish Universities across the country to present a half day workshops for groups of 30+ attendees exploring today’s environmental challenges and how filmmakers can make a positive difference through the stories they tell. The workshops will support potential competition entrants to submit the best quality applications.  The competition launch date will be 7th October 2019 and filmmakers will be able to submit entries until the end of December.
