The Making Waves Film Comp is a space for you to manifest your creativity while sharing your stories of optimism and freedom. All of the films entered will be showcased as part of the Making Waves Film Fest which will launch online on Wednesday 23 September 2020!
The theme is I found my freedom on the waves.
