    Now you can watch the Girls Impact the World Film Festival Awards Ceremony that was held at Harvard College on February 22, 2014. It was an amazing evening with special guests Abigail Disney (producer of the Women in War series), Eloise DeJoria (actress & philanthropist), Ian Somerhalder (star of the Vampire Diaries) and Kim Klingler (ED of the IS Foundation). Keep watching all the way through to see an amazing keynote from Abigail Disney; a wonderful conversation with Ian Somerhalder and Kim Klingler & a heartfelt talk by Eloise DeJoria. Many of the student film-makers were also present to accept their awards!

    The film festival is a scholarship CONTEST that allows students to submit 3 - 5 minute films on issues related to advancing women and girls globally. You can learn more about issue areas and prizes at www.connecther.org/gitw. This year we partnered with the Ian Somerhalder Foundation to create a "Green IS" prize for a student that submits a film that shows the effects of environmental issues on women and girls. We also partnered with the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) to create a prize to encourage more MENA region film-makers to apply.

    The GITWFF is an initiative of Connecther.org, co-produced with the Harvard College Social Innovation Collaborative (@HarvardSIC). For more information, please visit www.connecther.org or www.connecther.org/gitw Show less

  • Girls Education Play all

    Why are 62 million girls around the world not in school? It doesn’t add up, especially when such powerful things happen when a girl gets an education. She is less likely to get HIV. She has fewer, and healthier, children. She increases her earnings as an adult—by 10 percent for every year over fourth grade. And she is more likely to educate her own girls.

    STUDENTS submit your 3–5 minute film on environmental issues that either:
    1) propose solutions to environmental issues that impact women and girls OR
    2) create awareness about environmental issues that impact women and girls. Maybe it's a profile of a woman making a difference in the field, a law legislated by a woman, a specific problem that affects the economic activity of women in a given area, etc. How can these two issues come together to solve an environmental problem and advance women?

    Topics may include: climate change, green energy, water, pollution, garbage and waste reduction, bio-diversity, and other issues. Your film can be a: narrative, documentary, investigative reporting, music video, animation, or curated film (film collage).
