New York
01 October, 2013

The UN Forum on Forests (UNFF) Secretariat is holding the first screening of the 5 winning films of the Forests Short Films Contest ┐Forest for People┐ at UN Headquarters on 1 October. They feature stories of forests and people from Peru to South Africa.

The UNFF Secretariat partnered with the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival to honor the creative efforts of film makers who capture dynamic and unique relationship between forests and the people who depend on them. This year┐s Film Festival was for short films of five minutes or less. The winning films present a vision of forests through the eyes of Amazonian animals, young children and veteran charcoal burners.

In total, 128 entries from 38 countries competed to win at the prestigious Festival. Each entry shared a unique story of how forests inspire and contribute to our lives. An international jury, consisting of lauded practitioners and UN experts awarded 5 films.

As discussions of the priorities of the next development agenda take root, the International Forests Short Film Festival hopes to serve as inspiration for transformational change with Sustainable Development at its heart.

The screening will take place in UN Headquarters, room S-2723, from 1:15-2:15 pm. Seats are limited. To attend, please RSVP by sending an e-mail to forests@un.org
