The Human Rights Arts & Film Festival invite all Victorian secondary students to design a poster for the short film Hope City. How will you entice an audience to see this film? If a picture tells a thousand words, which image will you choose to use? What will be the tagline? This is your chance go beyond the surface of a film to think about the human rights message.
Each entry must be accompanied by a:
- Unique film poster designed by the student
- Written (short) synopsis of the film
- Minimum of five mock tweets that promote the film
- 5 minute pitch that describes how they have approached the task, what message they wanted to convey through their design choices, who they think the audience might be, what human rights themes they think the film highlights.
