Hospice of Waterloo Region is proud to be partnering with the Grand River Film Festival for the first time to present a short film competition that aims to get community members talking about what it means to live well until you die.
You Only Die Once: #YODOContest calls on filmmakers and storytellers in Waterloo Region to tell stories that to focus on death as a part of living. The short films are expected to be 3-5 minutes in length, and will explore and educate others about death, dying, and grief in a personally unique way that has a positive influence on the community.
HWR is currently accepting applications for film proposals. Submissions are due Sept. 15. If you would like to share information about this film contest with your online community, we have provided sample graphics and posts that you may want to choose from.
