Ten Honorable Mention films were also announced.
The Gold Medal winner is eligible to receive a full scholarship to the two-week University of Notre Dame Summer Scholars Program (Film Production Track) for either 2018 or 2019. The Silver Medal winner is eligible to receive a $500 partial scholarship toward attending Notre Dame Summer Scholars. Both winning films, along with the Honorable Mention films, will be screened as part of the ANDkids World Film Festival at Notre Dame on August 1, 2018.
Created to encourage high school students to use personal cell phones as creative tools by making short films with positive messages, the Force For Good Film Festival is inspired by the words of Notre Dame founder Rev. Edward Sorin, C.S.C., who predicted that the University would become “a powerful force for good.”
