Announced at the Cannes Film Festival by the World Bank Group’s Connect4Climateglobal partnership program, the competition will be open for submissions through September 15, with the winners to be announced at a high-profile awards ceremony at the United Nations COP22 Climate Summit in Marrakesh, Morocco in November.

The #Film4Climate Global Video Competition is a joint initiative of the World Bank Group and United Nations with the support of a number of Presenting Partners and over 60 Collaborating Partners.

The Film4Climate Global Video Competition invites filmmakers between the ages of 14-35 years old from all over the world to showcase their talents and create a Public Service Advertisement (PSA) (less than 1 min) or a Short Film (1-5 minutes) about climate action.

It invites young people to share their climate change story, as a short video of under 1 minute or 1-5 minutes. The winning entries will receive cash prizes of $8,000, $5,000, and $2,000 for first, second and third place in each of two categories: an under one-minute Public Service Advertisement (PSA) or a Short Film up to five minutes. 

The competition offers filmmakers a chance to have their work reviewed by a jury chaired by Bernardo Bertolucci, and including other preeminent directors, producers, writers and political leaders.
