Hi there,

Reaching out with some exciting news for young filmmakers and their adult sponsors (you). This year’s Directing Change red carpet event will be held at an exciting new venue: the newly-restored Eagle House in downtown Eureka!

If you haven’t started on your films but still are interested in participating, there’s still time. Please contact me to set up a site visit to your school or after school group to talk to you (or your students) about the film competition, how to create a safe suicide prevention message or to answer questions about this opportunity. 

Are you planning to participate? Please reply to this email to let me know. I can offer help make sure the messaging in your video is appropriate. Language and communication about this stuff is changing really fast and we’re all still learning—I want to help make sure your student/teen videos are as successful as possible.  (Also see judging criteria attached.)

For more info, please contact me.  I look forward to hearing from you!
