PACE (Prevent Addictions through Children’s Education), a non–profit organisation of doctors and social workers, has appealed creative minds, particularly college students, to come up with a storyline for a film on addiction of alcohol, smoking and drugs among college–going youth.
This is expected to be a 15 minute film and needs to connect emotionally and intellectually to the age group 16–24.
It should have a clear antismoking and anti–addiction stance and essentially touch the hearts. Interested students/creative minds can send storylines/ screenplays
The PACE will choose three best stories and they will be awarded cash prizes of Rs 7,500, Rs 5,000 and Rs 3,000 respectively. Since the purpose of making a film on addiction is not commercial, except the award money, no financial remuneration is given for the storyline.
Participants can visit www.chooselifenottobacco. in to view ‘Pratidnya,’ a film made by PACE, to understand the thinking process. Last date to send in the entries is November 21.
