Films for the ForestScreening date: March 10, 2019 | Free to the public, no SXSW badge or wristband required!
Films for the Forest (F3) is an annual international short film challenge created by Rainforest Partnership in 2010. Since 2012, winning F3 films have screened as part of SXSW Community Screening every March in Austin, Texas.
Our goal is to create awareness about the importance of tropical rainforests and the ongoing threats faced by forests and their communities, through the powerful medium of film.
Speak for the Forest
For our 10th anniversary of Films for the Forest, we wanted to give our forests a voice and chose the theme “Speak for the Forests.”
This year’s theme marries our F3 work with Rainforest Partnership’s mission to protect and regenerate tropical rainforests.
F3 involves filmmakers in this effort, encouraging them to explore their interpretation of this year’s theme with the intent to illuminate the vital role of Earth’s rainforests and forests in general.
