Announcing the €5,000 Green Film Network Award


This month launches the first annual Green Film Network Award as the transnational award for best environmental documentary of the year.

The Green Film Network is an association of the leading environmental film festivals worldwide, including SFGFF, and aims to support the diversity and the strength of documentary work around the globe. Nominated by 11 of the GFN member film festivals and selected by an international jury, the award includes a prize of 5,000 Euros and an award presentation and screening at a GFN festival, to rotate each year.

The inaugural GFN Award was presented to Amazon Gold during the opening ceremony of our sister festival Fife Île-de-France (International Environmental Film Festival) in Paris on February 4. Congratulations to filmmaker Reuben Aaronson and to all the nominated films that took part, including SFGFF’s nominee Trash Dance.
