The One World Centre is delighted to announce that Sure has become the sponsor for its innovative It’s Not Fair! Short Film competition for the Island’s primary school children.
Sure’s involvement means that many of the winning films from the competition will also be shown on Sure TV, giving young broadcasters and film-makers a fabulous opportunity to showcase their talents Island-wide.
The competition is open to all primary schoolchildren who are challenged to create a film of no more than four minutes about an aspect of global injustice such as poverty, human rights, access to clean water and sanitation or environmental impact. It is hoped to provide each participating school with a mentor through professional film-makers ManninShorts to help them with the production process.
Entries must be in by the end of the Spring term (22nd March) and the best films will be shown at a special presentation screening after Easter.
The school which is judged to have made the best film overall will benefit from a special workshop from ManninShorts. There will also be prizes for other categories such as best technical quality, most enjoyable and most informative.
Rosemary Clarke, director of the One World Centre, said “We are thrilled Sure has agreed to sponsor this competition and offered the opportunity to broadcast some of the films on Sure TV. As well as giving the children an extra incentive to produce a really good piece of filmwork, it will bring their thoughts on some of the global inequalities that currently exist to a much wider audience.”
Sarah Jarvis, Marketing and PR Manager of Sure Isle of Man, added “It is a pleasure to be sponsoring this exciting competition, organised by the One World Centre. Sure is actively involved in a range of community initiatives in the Isle of Man and we are passionate about supporting the development of children on our island. As part of Cable and Wireless, a multi-national company, we have always been mindful of the wider world in which we operate our business – any activity which highlights the need to be a good global neighbour is to be applauded. We very much look forward to seeing the results of the children’s hard work.”
