Green-Go Short Film Contest

IV. Green-Go Short Film Contest


Do you want to follow the path of David Attenborough and change the world from the large screen with your creative thoughts?


If YES, then




The organisers of Green-Go Short Film Contest are waiting for your creative/shocking/funny/explicit eye-opener short films in the following three categories:


·         Nature works for us!

Costumer service, car service, ecosystem service?! Indeed, nature works for us!  Without trees, we would not breathe, without wetlands and forests, we would not have clean water, without microorganisms, we would not have fertile soil and food. Beside our basic needs, nature keeps us healthy and happy – we go outside to do sports, we buy our houses close to green spaces and we go to nature during holidays.  Nature is also the base of our economy – it gives us jobs and provides the living for many – farmers, fishermen, gardeners, park rangers, tour guides, even industries.


Show us how nature works for us all or what would happen without the services of nature!


·         Feeding the world sustainably – Celebrating the International Year of Family Farming

50% chance your morning ham and eggs and milk are from a family farm. In the world, there are 500 million family farms, where agriculture activities are managed and done by a family. 70% of the world’s food production is provided by these farmers and small-scale fishermen, who safeguard biodiversity, traditional knowledge and techniques. They also provide the livelihoods for many as in developing countries out of the 3 billion rural people 2,5 belong to families engaged in Family Farming[1].

Show the importance of family farms, small-scale agriculture, traditional knowledge, and the need for more sustainable agriculture and more responsible consumers’ choice!

·         Fighting climate change and disasters with natural solutions

A global warming of 4°C could happen as early as the 2060s[2], whereas natural disasters and extreme weather will be in the rise increasing death tolls and economic losses. We have to get prepared, adapt and mitigate these impacts.

Our best weapon against climate change and its impacts is nature. 15% of the world’s terrestrial carbon stock - 312 gigatonnes - are stored in protected areas around the world. Nature also serves as buffers against disasters, providing space for floodwaters to disperse, stabilizing soil against landslides and blocking storm surges. It has been estimated that coastal wetlands in the United States provide $23.2 billion a year in protection against flooding from hurricanes.[3] But we can think in a smaller scale – only planting one tree can serve the cooling effect of 10 air-conditioners, using traditional local breeds in agriculture can result in more resilient yields, only planning a few hectares of green space in the city can reduce flood and heat islands – along with it health – risks.


Show how climate change threatens us, how we can fight climate change with simple, natural solutions and what existing solutions there are in the world already.

Black & White - International Audiovisual Festival

In May Porto opens its doors to the monochromatic aesthetics. The Black & White - International Audiovisual Festival, which receives video, audio and photographs in black and white, will take into competition works from all over the world.
With unique worldwide characteristics this initiative grew from the need to answer to the audience's growing sensitivity to black & white specificity, leaving behind the prejudice that relates this aesthetics with works of early cinema.
But the festival shows more than videos and photos in two colours, it also encourages the creation of sound environments referring to the black and white.
Over four days, several activities related to the audiovisual world will be carried out in addition to the competitions: artist talks, screenings and extensions from other international festivals. The nights will also be exciting with a broad cultural program.


International Film Festival of Prayag, is going to start its journey with the support of cine lovers across the world. The festival has been started by the persons having long associations with the industry under the ages of Z&Z MEDIA PVT LTD, a media production house based in Delhi, which is continuously working in this field from past 15 years. Short films have emerged as a universal experimental platform for both professional and amateur film makers alike. With proliferation of high quality digital technology at relatively low prices, every film enthusiast wants to embark on film making and short films are the first stepping stone in that effort. The IFFP 2015 is going to be a unique event because of its quality and excellence and undoubtedly for the place that we have decided- Allahabad,India

Allahabad ,also known as Prayag ,is a city in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh and the administrative headquarters of the Allahabad District. As of 2013, Allahabad is the seventh most-populous city in the state and the thirty-sixth most-populous city in India, with an estimated population of 5.11 million in the city and 1.21 million in its metropolitan region. In 2011, it was ranked the world's 130th fastest-growing city. The city's original name – Prayaga, or "Place of Offerings" – comes from its position at the union of the Ganges, Yamuna and Sarasvati Rivers called “SANGAM”, It is the second-oldest city in India, and plays a central role in Hindu scriptures. Allahabad has hosted cultural and sporting events, including Kumbh Mela and the Indira Marathon. Although the city's economy was built on tourism, most of its income now derives from real estate and financial services. Film Stars like Amitabh Bachan, , Anubhav Sinha, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Shubha Mudgal, Jaddanbai ,Nargis etc also belong to Allahabad we hope it would be a great place to organize a film festival. The city has best connectivity of Airport and Railway so there would be no problem of transportation from any part of the world.
