The 20 Winning Films from The Outlook for Someday sustainability film challenge for 2010 will be broadcast by TVNZ 6 in programmes screening every night from Monday 13 to Friday 17 December at 6.30pm and 8.30pm.
The programmes offer varied and innovative points of view from young people on the state of our planet. The winning film-makers come from throughout New Zealand and range in ages from 7 to 23.
Viewers will be encouraged in each programme by presenter Wendy Douglas to vote for their favourite from among the 20 Winning Films. The maker(s) of the film which wins the vote will receive a laptop computer and 10 randomly-chosen voters will win vouchers for The Body Shop.
The vote for Audience Favourite, which closes at 5pm on Sunday 19 December, is at The Outlook for Someday website www.theoutlookforsomeday.net.
TVNZ 6 Presents The Outlook for Someday 2010 will be broadcast on Freeview/TiVo (channel 6) and SKY/Telstra (channel 16).
Now in its fourth year, The Outlook for Someday challenge is to make a short sustainability-related film, any genre, filmed with any camera and any length up to 5 minutes. Anyone up to the age of 24 can enter, either individually or in a team.
In mid-November makers of 20 Winning Films received prizes and eight Special Awards were announced at The Outlook for Someday Awards ceremony at TVNZ with special guests the Minister of Broadcasting, Hon Dr Jonathan Coleman and Mayor of Auckland, Len Brown.
