Human trafficking film / Semi-Finalist in Youtube Film Festival
I love this site and all the great work you're doing in the fight against human trafficking!
I'm a filmmaker in Los Angeles and am really excited that my film "Sold" was chosen as a semi-finalist out of over 15,000 submissions for Ridley Scott's "Your Film Festival" - http://www.voteforsold.com
Sold is about a young journalist who is inadvertently captured into a human trafficking ring while investigating the treatment of undocumented immigrants in America.
If our film 'Sold' is voted by the public into the top 10, I'll be flown to Venice, Italy to open the Venice International Film Festival with my film! Even more amazing, if 'Sold' wins, Scott Free Productions will award a $500,000 grant for me to make my dream movie with Ridley Scott!
I'm thrilled by the prospect of going to Venice Film Festival as a filmmaker but also to use this film as an opportunity to spurn discussions about the topic of human trafficking and to gain exposure for the cause against it.
This is the link people are using to vote. If you like the film and feel led, please VOTE!
The above link will take someone directly to the film where they can click the red "VOTE" button to the right. Voting ends on July 13th and people are allowed to vote once a day.
I would like also to share a link on eCourse on Human Trafficking which is designed for business managers and employees. It is a fee online course that helps to understand what human trafficking is, how to identify where human trafficking might be a risk to business as well as actions to address this risk. The course is created by the UN Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking (UN.GIFT) and technically developed and sponsored by Microsoft.
