Ready for Your Close Up?
Here’s your chance to be leading lady, leading man, director or producer in a film about a very poignant time in your life. RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association and Fertility LifeLines are sponsoring a short film competition, entitled In the Know. They’re looking for entries– deadline August 1– about your path to parenthood, or the journey of someone you’re close with. The short film must be no longer than 10 minutes, and the winner will be awarded $1,000; two runners up will receive $500 each.
I like the concept! Film, or video, is a powerful medium. To see someone who looks like you, who’s approximately your age, or who’s struggling with the same issues you struggle with can be very moving. It can offer a reality check, an “aha” moment, and also comfort. At FertilityAuthority, we developed a video library for that very reason.
So I hope you budding filmmakers and wannabe actors and actresses will submit your entries. I’d love to attend the screening in NYC, and maybe I’ll see you on the red carpet!
