Redefine+ announces OPEN CASTING CALL for videos to re-vamp classroom HIV/AIDS education
OPEN CASTING CALL!
We are excited to announce that we are moving into production on the first HIV video (5th grade)! If you or someone you know who is HIV impacted might be interested in appearing in the short film, let us know!
The Redefine Positive Project is currently seeking families willing to appear in four short documentary-style educational videos for public schools. The videos will educate students in grades 5, 6, 8, and 11 about HIV and AIDS; they will teach medically accurate information regarding prevention and transmission and will help reduce the devastating stigma still associated with the virus.
Redefine Positive is partnering with Seattle Children’s Hospital Foundation and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction to provide all four videos free of charge to all 295 school districts in Washington state.

• Family must be located in the Pacific Northwest (preferably the Puget Sound area).
• Families must understand that the videos will have a wide audience that could include other states.
