Short films about Maple Ridge in 2034

Cinema Politica Ridge Meadows and the Golden Ears Transition Initiative will reveal the winner of its inaugural film fest on Thursday.

The contest asked youth to imagine what the future will be by producing a short film based on the topic: Ridge Meadows 2034.

“Ridge Meadows 2034” received six entries, with topics that cover everything from the environment, food security and transportation, said organizer Oosha Ramsoondar.

There are three prizes of $500, $250 and $100. There will be an audience choice award and even the runner ups will receive prizes, following a “red carpet” event. The short films will be posted on YouTube after Thursday.

• See the films at Maple Ridge municipal hall on Thursday, May 8 at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. The event is free.
