Teens From Around the World Skype Each Other. This Is What Happens

Teens in Philadelphia connect with peers from around the world as part of a unique program called Do Remember Me. Through the use of video chat and other technology, a student learns about a partner’s culture and discovers the similarities they share. Produced by Loki Films for the Sundance Institute’s Short Film Challenge, The World Is as Big or as Small as You Make It offers valuable insights into the lives of today’s global youth.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society.
