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
The following films will be available soon!
