YellowCard
Yellow Card

Winner of the 2020 Judges’ Choice Award, Yellow Card focuses on a girls’ soccer team’s campaign for equal pay for women in sports—a campaign that surprised the players by going viral. “I didn’t think my voice really mattered,” one of the campaigners told the filmmaker. That was before Billie Jean King and Hillary Clinton tweeted about the girls’ #EqualPay campaign. And before the phone started ringing with Anderson Cooper and Good Morning America on the line.

LoveYouForever
Love You Forever

When a parent faces mental health issues, a child is often left to pick up the pieces. Love You Forever, winner of the 2020 Best Film Production Award, is a coming-of-age film about a daughter who is forced to redefine the unconditional love she took for granted when her mother descends into depression.

Passoon
Passoon

Move over, Greta Thunberg. Passoon (“rising up for a cause” in Pashto) introduces viewers to 12-year-old Manal Shad, a passionate and outspoken Pakistani climate activist. In a country already suffering devastating impacts from climate change, Manal inspires other young people to rise up and get involved. Like Greta, she is fearless in her call for politicians to do their job and protect our planet.

BeBold
Be Bold & Win the Dream

In Be Bold & Win the Dream, a group of girls breaks with tradition to form a soccer team in a conservative village in Bangladesh. The dream of competing nationally gives the girls a goal—and provides a powerful incentive to resist pressure to marry young. In a country where 22% of girls marry by age 15 and 59% before their 18th birthday, that’s a big win indeed.
