Films for the Forest

        • Films for the Forest is our annual international short film contest. Winning films are screened as a part of SXSW Film Festival Community Film Screenings.
        • In previous years, Films for the Forest has received submissions from filmmakers spanning four continents, been judged by an impressive list of award-winning filmmakers and environmentalists, and raised $160,000 for Rainforest Partnership’s projects with forest communities in Ecuador and Peru.
        • The theme for F3 this coming year will be ‘The World Can’t Wait.’ Filmmakers were encouraged to use the power of storytelling to dynamically interpret this rainforest theme and create a unique, inspiring film to submit.
        • Films for the Forest once again was able to offer the Peace, Love & Happiness Award this year: a $1,000 cash prize sponsored by JP’s Peace Love and Happiness Foundation. This year it was awarded to Forest Products by Eric Nelson.
