The Someday Challenge has been empowering Aotearoa’s young people to tell stories about issues they care about through the medium of film since 2007.
On their website you will find the winning films from previous years, which are a great resource to provide inspiration and prompt other creative responses from ākonga. The films are short (5 minutes or less) and cover a wide range of sustainability contexts and perspectives from young people.
We also recommend watching the Someday Stories films, which are produced by emerging young film-makers. The 2021 series included the short film Taiao which explores how and why we use Aotearoa’s natural environment the way we do, presenting a snapshot of the times we live in without spoken word. The film was directed by Andrei Talili & Micah Winiata and produced by Micah Winiata.
