This October, the top 10 videos will be featured during a Washington, D.C.-based event for the media, Congress and both presidential campaigns. These top videos will also be broadcast to millions via Link TV, FSTV, and online. “We know Americans are inspired to take climate action; they’re already taking steps everyday,” said actress and Climate Matters juror Maggie Gyllenhaal. “I’m excited to see what people create.”
Gyllenhaal will be joined by Leila and Nadia Conners, the producers/directors of The 11th Hour — as well as a host of other entertainment producers and environmental advocates in juding the entries.
