tve biomovies is a film competition - in its second year - open to anyone aged from 9 to 99 around the world with access to a camera. Now in its second year, the event offers a chance to have their say on the most pressing environmental issues facing our planet today. All filmmakers worldwide are invited to submit proposals for short films on the global environment. A judging panel will select 10 of the ideas to go into production, with the finalists each receiving US$300 to make their one-minute film. In addition to competing for viewers on the online movie sharing portal YouTube.com, the 10 finalists will also be screened at the Climate Change debate at COP17, the international climate change conference being held in Durban, South Africa, in December 2011.
Entries will fall into five categories – water, energy, forests, oceans, and people living in harmony with their environment. The deadline for applications is October 21. To view the launch films and enter this year’s competition, please visit the competition website at www.tvebiomovies.org.
