EKFI call-out

...And ACTION! 
The second annual EKFI film festival is calling for entries.  

Through films that are entertaining, educational, and above all inspirational it is the Eco Kids Film Initiative’s goal to inspire real change through the children of today and generations to come by promoting a proactive strategy to environmental awareness through film as medium. This year we’re asking for films with the following theme(s) and/or topic(s): 

  • Earth, air and water
  • Conservation/wildlife
  • Sustainability

The guiding philosophy for the selection process is ‘earth action’ and ‘earth inspiration’. In other words, films should be by-or-about people and actions that can inspire kids to take action in their own communities and schools. 

  • The films should be between 2 minutes to 15 minutes in length. We accept documentaries and narratives that are either live-action or animated. Entries should be for children, not necessarily be about children. 
  • The target age group is 4-15 years in age. 
  • Entries should reach us no later than 30 April, 2012. The filmmakers will be notified no later than 30 June, 2012. The festival will take place in Cape Town in 2012.

EKFI is partnered with Cape Town Non-profit, While You Were Sleeping, and Hearth Heritage.
