International Forests Short Film Festival Finalists

International Day of Forests Logo

Global celebration of forests

21 March has been declared as the International Day of Forests by the United Nations General Assembly

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. This year's Film Festival is for short films of five minutes or less. We received 127 entries from 38 countries.

The 21 finalists, selected by an international jury of lauded film makers and senior UN experts, were announced on the 21st of March.

The five winning film makers will be honored in person during the tenth session of the Forum on Forests (UNFF10) in Istanbul on Wednesday, 10 April 2013.
