The outbreak led to the stay-at-home order in many parts of the world perhaps left people with feelings of being a part of movies or films which might triggered artistic creativities for some. If that’s you, we want to invite you to discover your talent, write your own short film screenplay that envisions a world in COVID-19 outbreak and use the pandemic as an inspiration to make your own COVID-19 themed short films. The story telling can be inspired by the experiences in love, family, friendship, depression, illness, spiritual, business, and social justice etc. Or simply write your story about what have changed and have you learned from this pandemic, how have you changed people’s lives, what motivated you to stay positive and find joy among the angst and isolations etc.
