We need to hack culture and improve how people behave around sex and consent. Media today gives us terrible depictions of consent: Men who keep pushing, women who say ‘no’ repeatedly and then give in, people who ask forgiveness instead of permission, and so on.
We’re on a mission to change that. We have a film festival for short, viral videos that get under the skin, reach people who would never seek out consent education, and change people’s viewpoints. The contest is open now, with $6,000 in prizes. Filmmakers can submit videos up to 5 minutes long at Film Freeway. To help us create this change, we have an Indiegogo for those who’d like to support this project. Every dollar is doubled by an anonymous donor!”
