EntSun News/10791979
LOS ANGELES - EntSun -- Impact filmmakers and creatives rejoice. For its 8th year, the Social Impact Media Awards (SIMA) (https://simaawards.org/submit/) is now open for entries.

SIMA is the most renowned global awards competition and curator in the social impact film space. Their Social Impact Media Awards have supported content creators on the front lines of social change since 2012, steering a paradigm shift into honoring and recognizing the kind of social impact storytelling that is overlooked and underserved—that challenges the status quo and redefines the creative boundaries of the field through unparalleled transparency and integrity. SIMA's year-round distribution programs then bring awarded films to audiences, communities, and classrooms around the globe, democratizing access to social issue filmmaking with an emphasis on what happens after the credits roll, i.e. impact through community engagement, coalition building and education.

From September 9th to October 25th, 2019, SIMA is accepting submissions for feature-length and short-format documentaries, virtual reality (VR) films, and impact videos that move, enlighten, and transform our world; as well as production companies and media funders who are trailblazing entities supporting the power of media to build public and political will for social action.

Each year, submissions from all over the world are invited to compete for honors, cash prizes, industry accolades, media features, distribution opportunities, and entry into SIMA's signature film programs. Finalists will be announced on January 10, 2020, and Winners announced on February 7, 2020.

SIMA is looking for original, wise, brave, eye-opening and creative productions that increase the awareness of viewers to local and global issues, to the resilience of humans facing deprivation, to the politics and movements of human rights, environmental and social justice, and to efforts and agents of change worldwide. We seek productions that raise important questions about the state of our contemporary world and inspire people to reflect on the meaning and potential of social activism and social transformation.
