Launched by Rainforest Partnership in 2010, Films for the Forest invites filmmakers from around the world to share the voices and stories of forests worldwide, highlighting their rich biodiversity and local communities, their immense beauty and importance to the entire planet, the threats they face, and the opportunities for renewal.
Rainforest Partnership protects and conserves tropical rainforests, critical assets in the climate crisis. Working directly with indigenous and local communities as guardians and economic participants, our integrated approach supports sustainable livelihoods, thriving biodiversity, and long-term forest protection in the Amazon and beyond.
The theme for the 2024 competition is: "Water: Fertility & Prosperity". We aim to inspire filmmakers to showcase the importance of forests and water through their diverse talents and creative expressions.
