Kimff and Delegation of the European Union to Nepal

“Green Growth: Green Recovery” Short Film Competition

Call for Entries

Do you have a story? Have you experienced climate change? How does the environment relate to you?

Kathmandu International Mountain Film Festival (kimff) and Delegation of the European Union to Nepal (EU) invite entries to “Green Growth: Green Recovery,” a short film competition that
tries to address these questions. We are looking for original and creative content that explores diverse perspectives, issues, opportunities, and challenges of how the environment and climate
change have impacted Nepal and Nepalis. As extreme climates, changing weather patterns, and global debates around the environment, climate change, and sustainability take center stage, both locally and globally, we believe you should be part of this discussion.
