Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling at the "Seeds of Tolerance" Award Ceremony

Last night was the "Seeds of Tolerance" award ceremony at the Arclight theater in Hollywood, hosted by Al Gore. Special guests were Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling, there to help raise awareness for "Seeds of Tolerance," which seeks to spread a message of acceptance by encouraging aspiring filmmakers to tell their stories on the topic of diversity.

The event was made possible by Current and the Third Millennium Foundation, which invited aspiring filmmakers to compete against one another by producing five to 10-minute videos that focus on the struggle and consequences of intolerance. Six finalists were then selected from the contestants.

Last night's grand prize winner received $100,000 cash, plus an additional $15,000 will be donated to the charity of their choice.
