Green-Go Short Film Contest

Festival
Festival presentation: 

The Green-Go International Short Film Contest aims to gather environmentally and socially conscious youngsters to organize the contest and the festival on one hand, and on the other hand, to inspire youngsters to creatively express their ideas in a 
short film format. With the shorts, we aim to raise awareness on environmental and social problems at global, European and national level. With Green-Go festival, we wish to create the basis of a sustainable green film event that activates both youngsters and the civil society, attracts interested people and stakeholders and generates dialogues within the whole society about key eco-social questions.
Within the film contest, we accept shorts in three categories to reflect on European awareness, global environmental and social problems and the connection between biodiversity and society.

This year we are awaiting short films (and Testimonies!) in the following three categories:

1. OUR FOOTPRINT ON EARTH
2. TWO FACES OF EXPLOITATION
3. YOU ARE PART OF NATURE. LIVE WITH IT!

SHOOT A WINNING SHORT FILM!

  • Are you concerned to hear of children risking their health and lives working in gold mines?
  • Is it shocking for you to imagine that once blooming nature is not here anymore?
  • You can’t agree that fair trade is just a short-lived fashion?

The organisers of Green-Go Short Film Contest are waiting for attention grabbing short films focused on consumption, resource extraction and the benefits of Europe’s nature. We expect films that raise awareness about specific problem or show a solution. Make a film in the following three themes that has a high impact on citizens and decision makers and calls them to act so our world becomes a better place to live.

The best shorts will not only win valuable prizes but will be showed at international events that affect our future!

You can submit your short film in the following 3 categories:

#1 OUR FOOTPRINT ON EARTH

Do you want to show that overconsumption is a pressing problem? Have you made changes in your life to consume less or more ethical? Love fair trade? Prefer buying local?

If you made changes in your life to consume less or you know others who did, if you love fair trade or buying local – this is your category! Make a film about innovative ways to reduce consumption. Show how consumers can make ethical choices like purchasing food from small, nearby farms, choosing fair-trade or even producing food for themselves! Show how you reached zero waste in your household or make sustainable choices when buying. Show how it made your life better. Explain what drives you to change. Inspire others to do the same – or more.

If you are running a small business that works in sustainable ways consider submitting a film in this category.

  • Make a film about overconsumption or the innovative ways to change or reduce it! Raise awareness and inspire others!

#2 TWO FACES OF EXPLOITATION

Do you see the dark side of raw material extraction, like mining or oil drilling? Are you aware that one million children work in mines all over the world? Do you think that such mining is not worth the social or environmental price?

Sometimes all is fine there, sometimes problems happen. Human rights get violated. People – sometimes indigenous peoples – get displaced without their consent and loose access to agricultural land. Children work there. Workers mine without protective clothing and proper equipment in environment that is hazardous to health. Accidents happen that may have been prevented. And then there are environmental problems – erosion, loss of biodiversity, contamination of water and soil and abandoned mines that nobody cares to close down properly.

  • Shoot a film and raise your voice for the protection of people and nature!

#3 YOU ARE PART OF NATURE. LIVE WITH IT!

Let’s imagine there is a court process to decide whether to keep European nature or to get rid of it. The only evidence in favour of nature would be three short films. One of them would be yours.What film would that be?

One filled with beautiful memories or one with arguments on creating green jobs and generating other benefits for people? Would you show benefits that nature gives people – a forest that cleans drinking water, a wetland that saves villages from flood, a meadow that helps bees to make honey, a forest that cools the air (and let’s not forget the mushrooms), or swallows that catch mosquitoes? Would you argue for the establishment of the largest protected area network – or has it been done already?

  • Make your stance for European nature!
