Girls Impact the World Film Festival Scholarship

The Girls Impact the World Film Festival, presented by the Harvard College Social Innovation Collaborative (SIC) and Connecther, is a film festival and scholarship program in which high school and undergraduate college students submit 3-5 minute short films that focus on a variety of global women's issues, including maternal health, microfinance initiatives, child-marriage, sex-trafficking, poverty alleviation, etc.


Winners will receive a monetary prize, film distribution channels via SIC, Connecther and Creative Visions networks, as well as an internship opportunity at Creative Visions in Los Angeles. An official screening and red carpet will take place at Harvard University. The film festival has marketing partners in college campuses across the nation.

Our goal is to tell stories about girls and women that raise awareness, envision in film the possibilities of our time for females globally, and propose solutions, all the while providing the young adult voice an outlet in a compelling medium. Films will (1) Raise awareness about current issues affecting women and girls around the world AND/OR (2) Propose solutions to current challenges faced by women.

These issues include, but are not limited to:
- Political participation
- Economic independence
- Domestic and gendered violence
- Maternal mortality
- Health care
- Poverty
- Teen & child marriage
- Sex trafficking and slavery
- Women and girls in media
- Women in Leadership
- Education for Girls and Women
