Lucky Me Short Film Contest

Friday, August 02, 2013 jeffrey 0 Comments

One of the ways families bond with each other is during mealtime. Everyone is encouraged to tell what happened throughout their day. Lucky Me promotes the importance of this family habit, thus the Hapag-Usapan Short Film Competition. Join which category you belong to: Student or Independent film-making enthusiast. Shoot and submit a 3-minute short film that focuses on the "Importance of Reconnecting with the Family during Mealtimes". It can be a documentary, a music video, silent film, animation, as long as it is your original video.
