Global celebration of forests
The United Nations Forum on Forests Secretariat partnered with the Jackson
Hole Wildlife Film Festival to honor the creative efforts of film makers
who visually capture how forests inspire, shelter, nurture and contribute
to our lives. The 2013 Film Festival was for short films of five minutes
or less. 127 entries from 38 countries were received.
The 21 finalists, selected by an international jury of lauded film
makers and senior UN experts, were announced on the 21st of March 2013.
The five winning film makers were honored in person during the tenth
session of the Forum on Forests (UNFF10) in Istanbul on Wednesday, 10 April
