Film student is finalist in international competition

May 07, 2008

Sophomore Zoe Ubaldo created the short film, “The Kids are Alright,” in order to show how adult discrimination against youths in her hometown of Frederick, Md., is unwarranted. The Communication major is one of 35 semi-finalists of Film Your Issue, an international competition to engage young adults in issues that impact their generation through the creation of two-minute films.

“I wanted to prove that much of the youth are being proactive and doing good for themselves and their communities,” says Ubaldo. “Yet, many adults may discriminate against them because of what they look like, what the wear, or that they skate, bike, etc.”

More than 500 submissions were received for the 4th annual competition. The winner will be given an award at the Film Your Issue 2008 Awards Ceremony at Sony Pictures Studios in Los Angeles, and his or her film will be featured across MySpace. Judges include Tom Brokaw, Walter Cronkite, Wolf Blitzer, Brian Williams, the UN Under-Secretary-General, and the president of USA TODAY.
