The Sustainability Living-Learning Community (LLC) is a residential community within University Housing at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Our community takes a holistic approach to educating the future leaders of the green movement by incorporating academic and experiential elements to provide students with avenues to explore their interests. The Sustainability LLC hosts a wide variety of events each semester to encourage students to see sustainability in new ways through a host of different lenses, offering unique experiences to learn and grow.
With this, our inaugural May Day Sustainability Film Festival, we hope to educate, enlighten, and entertain our campus and community through the medium of film. We are seeking short films in a variety of different categories to highlight at this event, which will be produced at a central campus location at the University of Illinois and open to the public.
The films chosen for the festival should be directly relevant to the broad topic of Sustainability. Suggested topics include:
Sustainable food sources/food justice
The sustainable home/business
This is just a start. We are open to consider other topics that directly relate to our theme.
Due to time constraints, highest consideration will be given to films that are under 10 minutes in length. We may, at our discretion, consider longer titles (under 40 minutes) if they are of exceptional quality and high interest to our student selection committee.
