Humane Educators' Toolbox: Filmmakers Capture Visions for a Possible Future

What does a just, compassionate, sustainable, healthy world for all look like? An important part of creating a humane world is being able to envision it. The Possible Futures Film Contest challenges filmmakers of all skill levels to commit their vision for the future to film. They just wrapped up their 2011 contest, receiving 317 entries from 44 countries. Below are the 1st and 2nd place overall winners from the judges' selections. They're short, poignant, and inspiring. Take a few minutes to watch:

First Place: Superhero by Nitin Das (India)


Superhero from Nitin Das on Vimeo.



Second Place: Smooch by Dawn Mikkelson (United States)

SMOOCH - Possible Futures from Emergence Pictures on Vimeo.



You can view the top nominees and award winners, as well as all 317 entries, which are organized into the categories peace and freedom; fair societies; sustainability and beyond; and human fulfillment. The contest will run again in 2012.

Filmmaking is a powerful medium for inspiring personal and systemic change, and it's a great way to get young people involved in exploring the global challenges of our world and taking positive action on their visions of the future.
