Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, Sarah McLachlan and Atom Egoyan are among the jury members for a new Canadian film prize – bringing attention to the global refugee crisis.

The $20,000 prize comes from the Radcliffe Foundation – in collaboration with the Vancouver International Film Festival.

The award will go to a “call-to-action” film “that inspires, engages and empowers Canadians to take action on the global refugee crisis.”

Other jury members include Louise Arbour and Craig Kielburger.

The winner will be chosen through a juried and public vote.

The winning video will be screened during this year’s Vancouver film fest, which kicks off September 29th.
