Fifth Third Bank and Mosaic Film Experience team to offer students a unique storytelling contest

Fifth Third Bank and the Mosaic Film Experience today announced the launch of the Momentum Film Challenge for high school and college students. All short films must be shot, edited, and submitted using mobile devices via TikTok. Submissions will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. on June 7, 2022.

“The partnership between Fifth Third Bank and the Mosaic Film Experience is a unique creative opportunity for our communities,” said Marcus Jackson, Vice President, Community and Economic Development Manager, Fifth Third Bank. “Everyone has a story. We are looking forward to helping students share theirs and celebrate creative thinking and diverse experiences.”

Each Momentum Film Challenge entry must include the theme, “What money means to me,” any form of currency as a prop and the saying, “Momentum.” Films must be between two to three minutes in length.

“For more than a decade, the Mosaic Film Experience has been challenging the conventions of storytelling and providing students with a platform to develop and share their voice,” said Skot Welch, founder, Mosaic Film Experience. “The Momentum Film Challenge is the next opportunity for students to express their unique perspectives through storytelling, a skill that is critical in any future profession.”

A panel of judges from Fifth Third Bank and Mosaic Film Experience will select winners based on content, technical excellence and uniqueness. The winners will be announced on June 24.

There will be one winner in the high school category and one winner in the college category. Each winning student will receive $530, a Fifth Third Bank swag bag and a job shadow day (high school) or externship (college).

Additionally, a celebration event will be held at the Fifth Third Bank branch in downtown Grand Rapids, 111 Lyon St. NW, to honor the winning students.

The Momentum Film Challenge is open to any high school or college student in the U.S. To enter, visit:
