Eko Kids Film Initiative


Through films that are entertaining, educational, and above all inspirational it is EKFI’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.

As part of our outreach programme the selected films will also do a short (no more than five screenings) tour of township schools after the official film festival.

SUBMISSION CRITERIA:
• The films should be between 2 minutes to 15 minutes in length.
• We accept documentaries and narratives that are either live-action or animated.
• The films should be made with children in mind; not necessarily be about children.
• There should be a strong environmental theme, which could be about a particular environmental issue, for example pollution, recycling, organic farming; about the beauty of nature; or about a community, organization or individual that is making a difference.

DEADLINE:
Entries should reach us no later than 28 February, 2011. The filmmakers will be notified no later than 31 July, 2011.
