Green Film Fest is an International Environmental Film Festival based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, one of the world’s major Arts capitals.

The Festival brings the best nature and environmental films to the big screen as a way of using cinema not only to entertain but also as a means to raise awareness through art and storytelling.

This year the Festival celebrates its 10th edition by inaugurating an International Short Film Competition. The contest is an unparalleled opportunity for independent filmmakers from all around the globe to exhibit their work on the big screen in an 1.5-hour unique programme.

We are looking for the best films addressing nature and environmental issues. We aim to introduce original and multiple perspectives, thus promoting a critical form of cinema which will contribute to social transformation.
