We live in challenging times. War, suffering and human rights violations break us every day. We feel at a loss, overwhelmed and confused as to how we can intervene and make a change. This competition was started four years ago in response to these circumstances. Today, we need hope and courage even more. We host filmmakers who look at the world with critical eyes and soft hearts, believe that another world is possible, and who prove to us, through their work, that cinematic interventions can bring change. We hope there’s some inspiration in each and every one of these films for anyone who personally or collectively wants to take action. We award the film selected by the love & Change international competition jury with a $5,000 cash prize.
