Next spring American Experience on PBS will air the documentary Stonewall Uprising. WGBH in Boston, which produces American Experience, is inviting "citizen reporters, journalists, video-bloggers, documentary story tellers, animators or new media-makers" to create three-minute shorts on the Stonewall Riots and their "legacy of courage."
There are five $1000 prizes for the best videos and the winning videos could air on PBS after Stonewall Uprising. I’ve been asked to be one of the guest judges—along with Cyndi Lauper and video journalist Michael Rosenblum—and the deadline for submissions is February 14. To find out more about the application process and what makes a winning video go to the open call home page at WGBH's website.
The trailer for Stonewall Uprising is after the jump...
