Bayonne Filmmaker's Bullying Film Wins AT&T Film Awards

Posted by AT&T Newsroom

One picture, one post, one text can change a life in an unimaginable and lasting way. That is the reality of cyberbullying which has become so very prevalent among young people in the digital age. High Tech High School student, David Mansour from Bayonne, New Jersey created a short film to highlight the cruelty of cyberbullying and show how it is negatively impacting so many.

His film entitled Leave a Message not only put a spotlight on the issue, but it received 1st prize in the 'Best Short Film- Youth' category at the AT&T Film Awards. David won camera equipment valued at $2,000, and the chance to hone his skills at a filmmaking workshop.

The complete list of winners and more information about the contest can be found here.

The 2017 AT&T Film Awards is an open competition. It seeks imaginative, undiscovered short films from aspiring filmmakers who want their voices heard. For the 3rd edition of the awards, we put the spotlight on the next generation of great storytellers, student filmmakers from middle school to college students. The contest also looks for innovative short films from emerging filmmakers who are shooting their projects utilizing mobile video technologies, like smartphones, tablets, drones and GoPros.

We received 664 outstanding entries from across the U.S. with filmmakers vying for a shot at prizes including cash awards, trips, camera equipment kits and a summer film program at the University of Southern California Cinematic School of the Arts.
