The curated forests films from the UN Forum on Forests film festivals feature community leaders who have inspired change through innovative approaches to afforestation and reducing land degradation. Others provide further insight on the diverse values and benefits of forests, their relation to people and the planet we share.
We feature various winners of the Short Film Contest such as 'Amazing Grace Rowan' by Pybus of South Africa, 'An Unseen World' by Paul Rosolie, 'Feel Like a Mountain' Elio Alonso Vasquez Miranda, 'Ma Forêt' by Sébastien Pins, and 'Reynaldo' by Dan Childs and Nick Werber of the United Kingdom.
For the International Forests Film Festival 167 film directors from over 30 countries submitted their movie for the festival. Winners were selected across six categories. We have selected numerous short clips providing you with a preview of the winning films.
