GI Film Festival-Reel Stories, Real Heroes!

ㅇOfficial Program Name

HEROES REMEMBERED: Voices of our Korean War Veterans

ㅇThe Campaign

The GI Film Festival and the Department of Defense 60th Anniversary Korean War Commemorative Team (KW 60) will host an educational initiative which gives eligible participants the opportunity to create a 3-5 minutes video which educates, encourages, and promotes the American veteran(s) of the Korean War.

The GI Film Festival will use a panel of 3 entertainment insiders who will select 5 films to become “official selections” of the 2013 GI Film Festival and award each a $500 scholarship.  

All qualifying videos will be featured on the DoD 60th Anniversary of the Korean War website and seen on-line by a world-wide audience

5 select videos will be judged by a panel of entertainment industry executives to be selected as official entries to the 2013 GI Film Festival and presented with a $500 scholarship
