Our newly-launched Ethical Film Festival celebrates the power film has to change the world. Screening virtually via the planetSHINE cinema in October 2021, and as part of our COP26 event in Glasgow, the festival will showcase the best in emerging and established filmmaking talent.

Shortlisted filmmakers will be invited to the awards ceremony, where an overall winner will be awarded with a new camera or piece of equipment to the value of £2500.

Filmmakers to submit their short films to one of six categories: Environmental, Human Rights, Animal Rights, Wildlife, Culture & Community, and Adventure.

Films must be a maximum of 15 minutes in length and can be entertaining, inspiring, poignant, or humorous. Both scripted and non-scripted film submissions are welcome.

Films can be shot on any camera but must have good standard of production values, and a trailer or cutdown of 30 seconds is required.
