One of the things we love most about Ian Somerhalder (besides how well he fills out his jeans as Damon Salvatore on The Vampire Diaries) is how much he gives back to the world that made him a star. This handsome celeb is very passionate about environmental causes and women’s issues, and even has his own foundation dedicated to positively impacting the planet.

That’s why his latest assignment comes as no surprise. Ian is on the judge’s panel for the Girls Impact the World Film Festival, a festival and scholarship program for female high school and undergraduate college students. Each participant submits a 3-5 minute short film focusing on world-wide women’s issues, with the winner receiving film distribution, a monetary prize, and internship opportunities!

From the GITW web site: “Our goal is to tell stories about girls and women that raise awareness, envision in film the possibilities for our time for females globally, and propose solutions, all the while providing the young adult voice an outlet in a compelling medium.”

That sounds amazing! Ian joins a panel of 11 other passionate judges, and we can’t wait to see which films get singled out as the best and watch them. And he’s excited about it, too! Somerhalder tweeted about the festival on July 13, saying:

“How awesome is this?Are you submitting? https://www.connecther.org/gitw/judges.”
