Sikh Coalition Diversity Video Competition (Update)

 

Enter the Sikh Coalition’s Diversity Video Competition and have a chance to win $1500!

I had the opportunity to meet with one of the organizers of the Sikh Coalition film competition this week, and highly suggest you submit a film if you have any interest in issues dealing with diversity. This is a small competition, which greatly increases your chance to win the prize money. 

Topic : My Crown, My Faith.

How does it feel to be a Sikh?  Why don’t you try!  Walk a mile in a Sikh’s shoes!

Filmmakers 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.

Submission Deadline: September 30, 2012

This year’s first place winner gets $1500 and will have his/her film premiered at the Sikh Arts and Film Festival in NYC in November!
