Environmental and film experts curate the top contenders in the Wild and Green Film Festival
Our Wild and Green Film Festival asks for shorts up to 30 minutes in length centered on today’s most pressing issues: climate change, endangered species, sustainability. Its jury is made of both environmental and film experts. We’d love for you to meet them:
