It's audience participation time! Come watch teams of filmmakers pitch video & film ideas that can help disrupt the polarization that feeds hate, extremism, and violence, and help decide which ones get to move forward! Your votes and support will help decide which ones move forward into production!

This event caps off the first Disruptors Hackathon - a fast-paced, 48 hour race-against-the-clock in which teams of creative artists will compete to develop a treatment for a video that can help counter polarization and violent extremism in America. The video can be any genre and take any number of different story angles. Throughout the hackathon, teams will have opportunities to get feedback from entertainment industry professionals, including producers, directors, screenwriters, and others.

Teams will pitch to a live audience, a panel of judges from the entertainment industry, and an online audience watching via livestream. Teams will be evaluated based on:

Entertainment value

Likely impact on target audience

Feasibility of production

Winning teams will receive $5,000 in funding as well as support from creative arts professionals in the entertainment, marketing, and advertising industries to fully develop and distribute their creative product in the subsequent weeks and months.
