Films For the Forest Competition Invitation to Students
January 30, 2019
I write to you on behalf of Rainforest Partnership (RP), and its CEO Niyanta Spelman, in order to convey our interest in you and your UT RTF students for our tenth annual film competition, Films for the Forest, which is held in Austin during SXSW. RP is deeply interested in the use of film as a medium for conservation, and has worked to create a festival that conveys this message to a wider audience. Richard Linklater has served as a judge for this festival since 2010, and will be part of the panel this year as well. Other judges that have previously served on the panel include Philippe Cousteau Jr., Elizabeth Avellán, and Jay Duplass. This is a fantastic opportunity for those interested in pursuing a career in filmmaking and powerful storytelling.
The competition will showcase the best shots and micro-short films and will award prizes totaling $1000 to the best shorts who interpret the theme, "Speak for the Forest".
Please contact me, if you have any questions or if you need a fee waiver for your students.

The deadline was January 31st but we have pushed it to February 15th
