Share Your Story about Infertility and Inspire Others!

Calling ALL ASPIRING FILMMAKERS:

Fertility LifeLines™ and RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association Present The In The Know Short Film Competition

Anyone who has struggled with infertility knows the emotional and physical burden of trying to conceive. Despite the fact that 1 in 8 couples experience infertility, many people feel isolated and alone in their journey. The In The Know Short Film Competition encourages those 7.3 million Americans affected by infertility to share their stories and provide hope and encouragement to others.

Those who have been touched by infertility can participate in the competition by submitting a creative, inspirational short film about their path to parenthood (or the journey of someone close to them). The film must be under 10 minutes in length. The deadline to submit entries is August 1, 2009. Submitted films will be reviewed by a panel of judges, and competition finalists will have their films screened at a festival in New York City this fall where a winner and runners-up will be chosen and awarded prizes. The winner will receive $1,000 and two runners-up will each be given $500. Click here for complete contest guidelines.

Now is your chance to make a difference by sharing hope and inspiration with your story!

If you have questions about the contest or how to submit a video please contact Colleen Minden at colleen.minden@emdserono.com or #781-681-2192.
