Youth United Anti Bullying Film Festival 2017

In February 2012 Boys & Girls Club Services of Greater Victoria in conjunction with members of Victoria's Community Centre Network (CCN) launched a film festival contest designed to engage local youth and teens in educating their peers and the wider community about the negative impact of bullying.  Due to the tremendous success of this event and support from local organizations and community partners, the CCN decided to make this into an annual event.  2017 will mark Victoria’s sixth annual Youth United Anti-Bullying Film Festival.

This event is meant to empower and engage youth in speaking out against an issue that remains very close at hand for many children and youth. Participants under the age of 19 are tasked with creating and submitting a 60-second public service announcement (PSA) that conveys a creative and impactful anti-bullying message. CCN reviews and prepares these PSAs to be screened at the anti-bullying film festival. The panel of judges is comprised of local public figures who assist with the selection the three grand prize winners.  This year the event will take place on National Anti-Bullying Day on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at l'école Victor-Brodeur at 637 Head Street.

And the winners of the 2017 Youth United Anti-Bullying Film Festival are...

First place: Boys and Girls Club - Right of Me - The Golden Rule
Second place: (tie) Gordon Head Middle School - The Luci's - Words Hurt & Fairfield Gonzales Community Association - Sam & the Youth Zone - Pandas Have Problems Too
