Sustainability is top of mind with so many people nowadays and it certainly is for the City of Miami Beach. That’s why when the City of Miami Beach approached Oolite Arts, to host a Sustainability in Action PSA competition, the visual arts nonprofit jumped at the chance.
The PSA contest culminated with 10 local filmmakers chosen as winners from a field of 35 entries, for their outstanding 30- to 60-second PSAs highlighting the city’s waste reduction efforts. Each winner was given a $2,500 production budget.
“Miami Beach is ground zero when it comes to things like this so we were excited to partner because we have our own film production department and the city was able to use this contest to revamp their film program,” Dennis Scholl, president and CEO of Oolite Arts said. “They now have a budget for that. Also, their Plastic Free Miami Beach initiative is another thing that made them the perfect partner.”
