The topic of the competition
eDward is accomplished in one category:
Love. New love. The love of one's life. True love. Unfulfilled love. Unrequited love. Platonic love. Love for sale. Authentic love. The only love. Lovesickness. The love of God. Our love. My love ...Without doubt, love has many facets. What's loveable to me might be repellant to you. And yet the need to share our experience of love is huge. Almost every film needs a love story, libraries are full of books about love, and love has inspired the seven arts more than almost any other subject.Quite apart from the everyday interchange between men and women, women and women or men and men, our prime and omnipresent concern is love. It can be considered and reconsidered from an almost infinite number of perspectives. New ideas and observations are always welcome in fathoming the mystery of love.And for all eDward filmmakers, this is YOUR chance to get to the heart of what you always wanted to say on the subject. An almost unlimited number of viewers is avidly waiting to see and hear it!
