Think You Have What It Takes to Stand Up 2 Cancer?

Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) is a newly formed national initiative to help raise awareness and accelerate science toward finding an end to cancer. After all, cancer affects all of us. It kills more than half a million people a year in America alone. 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes.

SU2C is inviting emerging filmmakers across the country to join the fight against cancer by turning their cameras on this disease. How has cancer affected your life? Show us your perspective, from the insightful to the irreverent, and take a stand. Each film must focus on the subject of cancer, being affected by cancer, and/or the battle against it.

The entrants will have the privilege of being judged by some of the industry’s top filmmakers and producers, including Laura Ziskin (Producer, Spider-Man, As Good As It Gets, Pretty Woman), Robert Greenwald (Director/Producer Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism), Julie Taymour (Director Across The Universe) and Lauren Shuler Donner (X-Men 1 & 2, Secret Life of Bees, Semi Pro) and Sherry Lansing (Former CEO of Paramount Pictures).

The top three finalists will premiere on Stand Up To Cancer’s website — alongside content produced by top filmmakers, journalists and performers.
