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. Due to the uncertainty of SXSW for 2021, we can not guarantee that a community screening of Films for the Forest will occur. However, Rainforest Partnership will have a virtual screening of its own, just like the 2020 competition.
The theme for the 2021 competition year is : “Inspire Hope”
Films for the Forest are films shot in, about or somehow relating to rainforests or the animals and people that depend on them.
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.
