According to their website, Cinema Culturas seeks to enhance students’ 4 C’s of 21st century skills – critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication by “providing fun and educational forums for all students to participate in, and having local communities come together via a digital platform.”

The theme “Heroes: reconnecting in a new world” allows students to write a story or create a short film on fictional characters, community leaders, or STEM heroes. The competition is also giving a special prize for original or adapted music that is used in the short film.

Awards will be presented to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners for each age category. Finalists’ work will also be showcased at the Cinema Culturas film festival. There is no fee to enter the competition.
