The Sundance Institute, in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is inviting filmmakers from around the globe, to compete in their first-ever Short Film Challenge.

Five winning filmmakers will have their short films premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival with each filmmaker receiving a $10,000 prize and an all-expenses paid trip to attend the 2015 Sundance Film Festival as the Special Guest of Sundance Institute and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The Short Film Challenge asks filmmakers to create a unique, compelling, and personal short film that explores an empowering person or an optimistic story about individuals and communities who are overcoming poverty and hunger, combatting disease, or improving health.

Submitted short films can be narrative fiction or documentary, imaginative, unorthodox, daring or simple — the style and structure are completely up to the filmmakers but the story must touch on economic inequalities.

According to Sundance Institute, the goal of the Short Film Challenge is to "use the power of independent film and collective creativity to inspire a global conversation around innovative solutions that real people are using to conquer these challenges."
