London Eco Film Festival 2021 - submissions now open!
Submissions for our 2021 event are now open! Thank you to everyone who was involved in our virtual 2020 event. We were lucky enough to be joined online by some of the worlds best film makers, raising awareness and facilitating action about the worlds current environmental and cultural issues. We hope to be back in a theatre in London in November with our 2021 edition, in a similar style to our extremely successful 2019 event.
our priorities for the 2021 london eco film festival
We will of course again be showcasing the incredible films that focus on conservation and the environment, but we will also have a focus on events that have affected every person on the planet in 2020/21.
During this COVID-19 pandemic we have seen people across the world generously giving up their time, money and skills to volunteer out in the community. Businesses, community groups and residents have gone beyond their call of duty and joined forces to ensure the elderly and most vulnerable have access to food, medication and other supplies during this lockdown. We want to highlight the positive stories, no matter how big or small.
Also, while the number of deaths has fallen in response to global lockdowns, the pandemic is also associated with increased anxiety and depression in experiencing isolation. We want to tell the stories of those people who have been affected in a negative way by the pandemic. We want to show your stories and allow you to put across your thoughts in order to better educate those who cannot know what you have been through.
