Background

Green-Go Short Film Competition

Since 2011, “CEEweb for Biodiversity” has been organising the contest called ““Green-Go Short Film Competition” which aims to reward and share short films on natural solutions to climate change, sustainable farming and benefits of nature.

For the 2014 contest, there are three categories under which the films could apply:

1). Nature works for us!

2). Feeding the world sustainably – Celebrating the International Year of Family Farming

3). Fighting climate change and disasters with natural solutions

The first category is particularly relevant for hunting activities:

“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!”

As hunting is directly linked to cultural services provided by nature, it represents an opportunity for hunters to share their views on the topic and to show how important nature is for human well-being and survival.

The contest is open to anyone who wishes to participate and we encourage anyone who is interested to do so. There will be one award-winner in each category: 325 Euros and one public-award for one film based on the online public votes: 170 Euros

The short film should be (some requirements):

  • EITHER A campaign film with maximum of 60 seconds OR A short film between 60 seconds and 4 minutes
  • The films can be made in any genre (cartoon, animation, puppet film, documentary, interviews, etc) The shocking, saucy or dumfounding, in brief the eye-opener and impressive films will get a big plus during the evaluation.
  • The original film file can be sent in any film format via the below detailed file transfer websites in high resolution (at least 720 px wide).

The deadline for submitting the film is Wednesday the 10th of December 18:00.

All videos will be uploaded to the website by 12 December 2014 in the short film contest’s menu ENTRIES (www.greengofest.eu/entries), where the visitors will be able to view the films and vote online for the best video between 13:00 CET 12 December 2014 and 13:00 CET 19 December 2014.

On 19 December, the jury will announce ONE winner for each category.
