The Videoblogs Opens a Mental Health Video Competition for Young Filmmakers

We know many of our supporters have important mental health stories to tell. If you can tell yours on video, you may want to take a look at The Videoblogs Dialogue.

The Videoblogs is an upcoming independent film about depression, anxiety, and the impact of sharing our stories. The Videoblogs Dialogue is an accompanying video competition. If you submit your own video about mental health or personal struggle, you could be eligible to win a mentorship package that will help you make your own short film.

The prize package available to be won by a participant aged 18 – 24 is impressive: a $2,000 grant to help fund your short film about mental health and mentorships from film producers, crowdfunding experts, and other industry professionals to guide you through its creation. Older participants can also submit their stories for the chance to have them appear in the credits for The Videoblogs.

Ashley Esqueda, member of our advisory board, Tomorrow Daily host and CNET senior editor, will be one of four members of the jury for The Videoblogs Dialogue, alongside comedian Paul Gilmartin, writer/performer Grace Parra and acting teacher Alice Spivak. The deadline for entries is June 20, so you still have lots of time to find just the right way to continue the conversation about mental health.
