Facebook announces film competition
Young Lions 'Story in seconds' Showcase is open for entries
What's your story?
Everyone has a story, one that might ignite laughter, tears, love or anger. From monumental life events to everyday moments – it is these stories that create connections and bring people together.
This year, the Young Lions ‘Story in Seconds’ Film Showcase
, hosted by Facebook, highlights the next generation of creative leaders and their ability to communicate their stories in a matter of seconds. There are a number of innovative approaches people are taking to embrace the opportunity of communicating ideas in a mobile, feed-based environment, and we believe that the industry’s best work is yet to come. Connected we can create anything.
The ‘Story in Seconds’ competition takes place on June 1 (midnight, EST) through June 13 (midnight, EST). Submissions may only be up to 15 seconds long and submitted to this Facebook Group
for official entry. After June 13, a VIP Jury (see below) will select the winning pieces of work to be announced at Cannes.
Creators of the winning work will be invited to accept their award on stage at the Facebook Beach Space in the afternoon on Thursday, June 22, at Cannes and join us for an intimate celebration with Facebook’s Creative Shop later that evening.
