Create & Share Short Hero Films

Filmmakers profile and share their heroes with our global audience. Each year, great new short films are submitted to the MY HERO archive. These films are used online in classrooms to enhance lesson plans, explore social and environmental issues and to promote character education and media literacy. Learning about the heroes featured in these inspiring films helps young people understand their own ability to affect positive change in their community. DVDs of selected short films are available for classroom use upon request.
