Films for the Forest (F3)
Early Deadline: Nov 01, 2020
Regular Deadline: Dec 31, 2020
Online Extended Deadline: Jan 31, 2021
Films for the Forest (F3) is an annual international short film challenge created by Rainforest Partnership in 2010. Since 2012, winning F3 films have screened as part of SXSW Community Screening every March in Austin, Texas. Due to the uncertainty of SXSW for 2021, they can not guarantee that a community screening of Films for the Forest will occur. However, Rainforest Partnership will have a virtual screening of its own.
The theme for the 12th anniversary of Films for the Forest is Inspire Hope. Judges will be grading the film based on:
- Storytelling – Does it have a clear and compelling narrative?
- Technical expectations – Use of image, sound, editing quality.
- Creative expectations – Use of imagery, sound, editing, acting.
- Theme relevance – Does it relate, interpret, or address the theme clearly?
F3 involves filmmakers in this effort, encouraging them to explore their interpretation of this year’s theme with the intent to illuminate the vital role of Earth’s rainforests and forests in general. Films for the Forest are films shot in, about or somehow relating to rainforests or the animals and people that depend on them.
F3's goal is to create awareness about the importance of tropical rainforests and the ongoing threats faced by forests and their communities, through the powerful medium of film.
