The competition starts on 17 September, when we’ll release the competition brief – online, and at a launch event at 10am at the Curzon Soho. (The briefing will also be available online and emailed to anyone who’s signed up for updates.) The closing date is midnight, 1 October. It’s being promoted across Europe, with film-makers in the UK, Germany, Belgium and France all taking part.
The best films will be screened at a special event at the Curzon Soho in November. The films will be watched by thousands of people around the world and will be a key part of Greenpeace’s climate campaign. Judged by a prestigious panel of judges, the winning film will be awarded a £5,000 budget to make Greenpeace’s next campaign movie.
Greenpeace is campaigning to get Volkswagen to stop obstructing laws to make cars more efficient and to reduce CO2 emissions across Europe. As part of that, this competition challenges film-makers to turn the cameras on Volkswagen and their lobbying.
