The American Academy of Neurology Foundation is accepting submissions for the 2011 Neuro Film FestivalSM and Contest. Make a film telling your story—or the story of a loved one—affected by MS (other brain disorders may also be featured). Help make the case for why more brain research is needed to find cures.
Eligible entries could win up to $1,000 and a trip to see their films screened at the 2011 Neuro Film Festival contest held in Hawaii. You don't have to be an expert filmmaker to share your story.
To enter, make a short video (up to five minutes long) telling the story about someone living with a brain disorder. Be sure to use the phrase "Let's put our brains together and support brain research. Visit www.neurofilmfestival.com" in your video. You will then upload your video to YouTube as a response to the 2011 Neuro Film Festival video and complete an official entry form. The deadline for submissions is Feb. 15th, 2011.
