As we partner with organizations like the Daniel K. Inouye Institute and Ted Stevens Foundation, we work to build a better future by working with students who have a powerful voice to reimagine a new world. Each year this contest has a new theme. Student finalists selected to showcase at HIFF will also have the opportunity to meet a celebrity youth ambassador in a private Q&A discussion and Awards Ceremony. Past guests include director Destin Daniel Cretton, actors Jacob Batalon, Phillipa Soo, and Harry Shum, Jr. Submit your film today!
