The Power of Hope

In line with the current cross-curricular campaign “Promoting Positive Values and Attitudes through English Sayings of Wisdom 2021/22”, jointly organised by the English Language Education and the NET Section, the theme “The Power of Hope” engages participants in an exploration of the focus of this year’s campaign, Hope, and how this positive value can be communicated through a short film to encourage optimism, gratitude, proactivity and cherishing what we have.


Filmit 2022 includes the following categories of competitions:

  1. Fiction

A fiction film is a narrative based on the theme The Power of Hope that involves fictional character(s) facing a situation/challenge/problem and resolving it. A story structure should be clearly developed (i.e. orientation, complication, resolution).

  1. Documentary (Junior Secondary and Senior Secondary Sections only)

A documentary film is an exploration of the theme The Power of Hope by recording real or actual events/information. Evidence of research and sources of information should be included.

  1. One-Minute Film (Secondary only)

The emphasis in this category is on the promotion of Hope and Optimism through a one-minute film. The film can be persuasive or informational, and while film genres such as advertisements and social media posts would be appropriate, other genres may also be suitable. Use your creativity and imagination. 

  1. Poster Design

This category recognises the artistic and creative talents of students in film poster design. Teams submitting films for Filmit 2022 may also enter the poster design competition. The poster design should be based on the submitted film and must include the title of the film and the school name.  It should also relate to the main message in their film.
