1st SikhNet Youth Online Film Festival

Comments Email this Article

    In partnership with the
    Spinning Wheel Film Festival

    May 18, 2006 -, a well known resource for all things Sikh on the Web, in partnership with the Toronto based Spinning Wheel Film Festival, opened submissions today for the first-ever online Sikh Youth Film Festival. The theme of the festival is "What being a Sikh means to me" and this young filmmaker's competition for Sikh Youth (up to age 25) is designed to encourage and inspire Sikh youth to get involved in media and film and use their creativity to produce interesting and educational short films based on their own personal experiences and designed to spread the spirit of the Sikh lifestyle. SikhNet hopes to inspire youth to get involved in the world of film and media and to continue to use it for the benefit of the Sikh community.

    The genesis of the festival came both from the proliferation of short videos appearing on the Web at sites such as Google Video and YouTube and also the viewing of a short film created by a young Sikh woman for a college roundtable project. Tapping into the creativity of Sikh youth worldwide is one of SikhNet's primary goals.

    SikhNet is looking for videos that come out of the entrants' own personal experiences and that are designed to move and inspire viewers. Cash prizes up to $1000 in both Senior Division (18-25 years old) and Junior Division (11-17 years old) will be awarded when the festival ends on September 1st, 2006.

    SikhNet hopes that this good-spirited competition will become an annual event drawing entrants from all around the world.
