Application Deadline: 18:00 CET, 15 September 2015

  • Are you concerned to hear of children risking their health and lives working in gold mines?
  • Is it shocking for you to imagine that once blooming nature is not here anymore?
  • You can’t agree that fair trade is just a short-lived fashion?

The organisers of Green-Go Short Film Contest are waiting for attention grabbing short films focused on consumption, resource extraction and the benefits of Europe’s nature. The Organizers expect films that raise awareness about specific problem or show a solution. Make a film in the following three themes that has a high impact on citizens and decision makers and calls them to act so our world becomes a better place to live.

The best shorts will not only win valuable prizes but will be showed at international events that affect our future!

You can submit your short film in the following 3 categories:

  • Our Footprint on Earth: Make a film about overconsumption or the innovative ways to change or reduce it! Raise awareness and inspire others!
    Do you want to show that overconsumption is a pressing problem? Have you made changes in your life to consume less or more ethical? Love fair trade? Prefer buying local?
  • Two Faces of Exploitation: Shoot a film and raise your voice for the protection of people and nature!
    Do you see the dark side of raw material extraction, like mining or oil drilling? Are you aware that one million children work in mines all over the world? Do you think that such mining is not worth the social or environmental price?
  • You are part of nature. Live with it! : Make your stance for European nature!
    Let’s imagine there is a court process to decide whether to keep European nature or to get rid of it. The only evidence in favour of nature would be three short films. One of them would be yours.What film would that be?
