Films have the power to inspire. The Forest Film Festival will transport audiences to some of the world’s most stunning tropical forests, featuring stories based on research by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and World Agroforestry (ICRAF), highlighting the crucial role that these biodiverse ecosystems play in providing people and the planet with vital services from nutritious food to protection from climate change.
Each screening will be followed by a panel discussion with researchers and film producers, offering insights into what goes on behind the scenes. The audience will also have the chance to participate by voting on the films they like most.
The 2021 Forest Film Festival will also be launched. For the second annual event, we will accept submissions from filmmakers from around the world and offer prizes. Stay tuned for more details.
