Black Nights green initiative for submissions
The world is in crisis and collective global action is needed. Like most other organisations on the planet, film festivals also need to critically assess their practices and make changes where they can. Showing films that are tackling these issues is just not enough anymore.
Black Nights pledges to do more in engaging in sustainable activities in 2020 and support and spread the world of people who are trying to make a change. A Green Pledge of film festivals is currently also in the works with several major film festivals, including Black Nights, attached.
But in the meantime, we are announcing that in 2020, from every registered film submissions we receive in Filmfreeway, we will be donating one euro to restore the forests destroyed in the Australian bushfires and encourage others to undertake similar actions.
Hopefully, this small step will be the first among the big ones that will follow, collectively!
It is as they say: we don’t have a planet B!
The film submission for #PÖFF24 is open!
