04 Mar A Competitive Film Festival – Submit your film by March 22!
Announcing our latest film festival partner, the CMS VATAVARAN Environment & Wildlife International Film Festival and Forum! We haven’t yet met in person but our partnership has developed over emails and a videochat 🙂
The bi-annual 9th CMS VATAVARAN festival will be held from 2nd to 6th November 2017 in New Delhi, with films, forums, workshops, field visits, food festival, nature bazaar, etc.
Taking forward the 2015 theme on water, the 9th edition will once again delve into the issues of climate change and water under the theme- Conservation 4 Water. Films showing the inter-connectedness of climate change and water, water struggles in a world dealing with global warming, climate variability, food and health insecurity, desertification, biodiversity loss, and environmental damage can be submitted under this theme. Environment and wildlife Indian and International Filmmakers (professional, amatuer & students) are invited to submit films in 13 categories in both Indian and International sections.
As their partner for 2017, submissions of film entries through SGEFF will be free. So, if you are keen to submit your film through us, get in touch with! For more info on the competition: http://cmsvatavaran.org/call-for-entry/
We are slowly starting up activities for the new year, and kicked off 2017 with our 2nd screening of A Plastic Ocean at EarthFest Singapore. Much like last year’s response to our screening of this film, we once again had overwhelming interest and almost sold out. This film is a must-see given the fragility of our oceans, if you are interested in hosting a screening at your company or organization, please get in touch!
Next Thurs night (March 9) at 730pm, we will have the 1st in a series of bio-eco workshops on reconnecting with our bodies and the environment. Microbial March is a living fermentation lab that invites everyone to come and learn about the art and science of food fermentation. Our main partner and venue is FabCafe Singapore at the ArtScience Museum; for this upcoming workshop, our other community partner (& collaborator on all things fermented 😉 and co-host is Fermentation GutHub.
See you there!
