Call for Short Film Entries - June 15th Deadline

Breakthrough: Putting the Nuclear Genie Back in the Bottle

President Obama has stated, “This is the moment to begin the work of seeking the peace of a world without nuclear weapons.” We want to make sure that the new US policy reflects this position, and we are working hard to make sure President Obama’s words are turned into action.

Many proponents of nuclear weapons argue that nuclear weapons cannot be “un-invented,” or that “the nuclear genie cannot be put back in the bottle.”

How can we achieve a world free of nuclear weapons by the year 2020? Once this is achieved, how can we make sure that the “nuclear genie” stays in the bottle forever? Make a video of 3 minutes or less addressing these questions.

Eligibility: The contest is open to people of all ages.

Awards: 1st Place: $1,000
2nd Place: $750
3rd Place: $250
5 Honorable Mentions

Deadline: All entries must be received electronically by 5:00 pm Pacific Time on June 15, 2009.
