This summer the Childnet Film Competition invited schools and youth organisations from across the UK to capture their internet safety messages in a short film, looking at the theme of ‘Connect with respect’.
The competition, run as part of Childnet’s work in the UK Safer Internet Centre, saw the highest ever number of entries in 2018 with a total of 223 films submitted and a spectacular 1,000+ young people taking part.
The competition is a firm favourite in the Childnet calendar and we always enjoy watching each and every film that gets sent in.
The tricky thing is making the difficult decision of picking the top three films in each category. To help us with this process we stick to a firm list of points which all films must adhere to.
Introducing the best of the rest:
In the run up to the launch of the Childnet Film Competition on the 18th February 2019. We will be showcasing the talents of the 10 films who made it to the shortlist of our 2018 competition. We have already seen 4 of these brilliant films and now it is time to introduce the next two.
Templars Primary School film ‘Comment with kindness’ highlights the importance to always post kind and positive comments on other people’s selfie’s, video’s, or online games.
Our secondary age category film for this month is from Orchard School, who show us the power of being a good and kind online friend through old school black and white silent movie storytelling.
