Human Touch Foundation conducted a short film making competition on drug abuse on the theme “Life Does Not Rewind ! Make Right Choices”
Through film making, young people can play a key role in raising awareness and correcting misconceptions about behaviors which are harmful to their peers. The short film competition sought youth-to-youth films, particularly at a time when so many expectations are put on the younger generations. The film competition was open to filmmakers in two categories, i.e. students and open category, and required them to submit short films between one to 10 minutes long. Submissions, which could be dramatic, comic or documentary pieces, must address the impact on young people of drug abuse.
The competition aimed to engage all stakeholders to work collectively, each in their own field, to spread awareness among the younger generation on drug abuse that can negatively affect their health. It was an initiative of Human Touch Foundation to engage young people and to raise awareness on such issues through sport, art, music and culture in a bid to effectively influence children and youth.
Human Touch Foundation now uses these films as educational material in educational institutions and communities.
