Students were provided with two clips: a title card and credits. “What happens in between?” said organizer Gaetan Royer, “The kids will use their creativity to come up with it.”

In the end, four teams were accepted. Over 48 hours, they produced four three-minute videos with a human rights theme.

Videos will be screened together with two other human rights short films, according to organizers.

The winner of Amnesty International Quick Flick challenge will be announced Wednesday, May 22 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Port Moody Inlet Theatre. The free event is open to all Tr-City residents interesting in attending.
