  1. 2nd Annual Drug War Vigil Film Festival
    by the Drug War Vigil Memorial Group (14 Mar, 2003)

    Entries must be registered by March 14, 2003

    The Drug War Vigil Memorial Group is a social justice think tank that was founded in the fall of 2000. We are five medical cannabis users, dedicated to ending the War on Drugs. We as a group collectively recognize that the militarization of this medical issue and the criminalization of the chronically sick, terminally ill and chemically dependent has resulted in the needless loss of human life, and that this is the true crime.

    We create and promote social justice journalism and the 2002 Cannabis Culture Toker's Bowl Drug War Vigil Film Festival was one such example. We are proud to announce the 2nd Annual Drug War Vigil Film Festival to be hosted again in May 2003. Our group is honored to be affiliated with this world-class event and thank Marc Emery for his extraordinary activism in action in support of this event.

    Send us your films of 30 mins or less on any topic related to cannabis, drugs and the drug war. Submitted only in plain old VHS tape or Hi-8 or digital 8.

    The films will be screened and judged by participants at the Cannabis Culture Toker's Bowl May 1-4 2003, in Vancouver, BC.

    The film chosen for first place will receive a Grand Prize of $2000 US. Cash prizes totalling $2700 US will be awarded for the top four runner-up films. Other runners-up shown on pot-tv.net will receive honorariums of up to $250.00 US.

    You must register your film for entry by March 14, 2003 to be eligible. We will need to receive the finished film by April 14, 2003.

  2. I would love to make some type of movie, if only I had the time. I think the topic of effective marijuana use is extremely underrepresented and film would be a great medium to rely some facts about the herb.

    Perhaps next year...
  3. Thanks for the reply, the response so far this year has blown us away because people all over the globe are getting in touch wanting to get involved. We would like to bring the event to micro-cinema/theatres across europe for 2004.We were just covered in www.filmthreat.com in the festivals section. After all the insanity quiets down after the festival anyone out there who can help us with a web site and aspiring film activists who would like to help us work with the material we are receiving. Stay in touch, spread the word, help us organize festivals for 2004. Peace.
