In early 2016, the Tyler Clementi Foundation embarked on an exciting partnership with AT&T and the All American High School Film Festival to raise awareness about cyberbullying by inviting high school filmmakers from around the country to create original films on the topic.
With only 72 hours in New York City, each of 27 teams of teenagers produced their original film. This youth focused, youth driven and youth created content is raw, authentic and valuable, revealing how bullying is viewed by teens today, and how it affects all involved, from the victim, to the bully, to the bystander.
Now, you can vote for the short film that you like best as part of the Public Choice Award (with a $5,000 cash prize)! We invite you to view them all here and cast your vote for your favorite film.
One of these talented teams will also be invited to join us at our Upstander Legacy Celebration on November 14th! Help us congratulate them on their hard work by joining us at this year’s event.
Our partnership with AT&T and the All American High School Film Festival highlights the power that the arts have to engage and educate people about the effects of bullying and cyberbullying. Together, through the power of collaboration and the strength of #Upstanders like you, we can continue our work to end online and offline bullying, harassment and humiliation.
