The Climate Change Commission (CCC) and the Oscar M. Lopez (OML) Center are joining forces to spearhead the 2nd Klima Film Festival (KFF), a project which targets to showcase the artistry of young Filipino filmmakers in promoting awareness on climate issues through mainstream media.
“We conceptualized the Klima Film Festival, together with the Oscar M. Lopez Center, by putting emphasis on the biggest challenge of our time that is climate change, and the vital role of our youth in driving climate action,” CCC Commissioner Rachelle Anne Herrera said during the digital press launch on July 8th.
Focusing on the theme, “Adapting for a Sustainable Future”, all interested applicants must form a group with a maximum of ten (10) members, aged 16 to 22 years old.
Registration is open until July 31 at bit.ly/KFFSignUpSheet.
All teams are required to attend a sequence of free virtual seminar workshops broaden their insights on climate change before submitting a detailed concept or synopsis of their entry.
Submissions shall include: the short film in a form of narrative fiction, with resolution of at least 1080p, and running for five to seven minutes including title cards and credits, a trailer, and an official poster.
