Submission Tool Box

 

Suicide Prevention Toolbox

Submission Requirement Checklist:

Number One: My film is exactly 60 seconds long depending on the submission category. The title slide does not count toward the 60-second limit.

Why this matters:  Many of the films (even if they are not winning films) are used to support local awareness efforts and shown in local movie theaters and even on TV.  We are only able to use films that meet the 30 or 60-second requirement (based on the submission category you choose).
 

Number Two: My film includes the required end slate.  Films must include this end slate which includes a compilation image of logos and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. This end slate should appear at the end of your film and within the 60 second limit.

In addition, you may also include the Crisis Text Line (text “HOME” to 741741) as an additional resource in your film. Learn more about the Crisis Text Line here.

Number Three: My film includes a title slide. You may use this title slide template or you may create your own title slide as long as it includes the required information below. Download the Title Slide Template here.

The title slide is not counted in the 60-second limit and needs to include:

  • Film Title
  • Filmmaker (s) names: (these are the youth involved in the filming, editing, or creation of the film)
  • School or Organization, Club or Other Affiliation Name

Number Four: I have release forms on file for every participant involved in my film:  Filmmaking requires discipline and dedication to the craft. Youth filmmakers and participants are honor-bound to acquire all necessary permissions and signatures and must accept the liabilities for copyright violations. This means the cast and crew, and anyone else involved in creation of your film must sign a release form, including parent/guardian signatures if they are under the age of 18. For more information visit the Release Forms page.

Number Five: My film doesn’t include any disqualifying content:  Be sure you’ve reviewed the “Disqualifying Content” section of the submission category of your film to make sure your film won’t be disqualified for including any of this content. For example, if you’re submitting in the Suicide Prevention category, your film should not include portrayals of suicide deaths, attempts, or actions leading up to an attempt (such as a person holding a gun to their head or standing at the side of a ledge). Any films that show this or show any weapons will be disqualified.

* A reminder! – All film submissions should align with safe messaging guidelines and there are specific safe messaging scoring measures for each category which we encourage you to review.

Through the Lens of Culture Toolbox

IMPORTANT NOTE: Remember that films submitted in this category still need to comply with the safe messaging scoring criteria of the mental health or suicide prevention categories. The following requirements for the “Through the Lens of Culture” category are in addition to those of the Mental Health Matters or Suicide Prevention category.

For example, the Suicide Prevention category asks film makers to communicate a message about what someone can do to prevent suicide such as recognizing the warning signs, finding the words to express concern and connecting the person to help.  Think about how the warning signs and risk factors might differ for members of different cultural groups.

Review the Official Judging Form for the Through the Lens of Culture – Suicide Prevention or Through the Lens of Culture – Mental Health Matters category to ensure your film receives the most points possible.
