To celebrate the International Year of Forests, 2011 (Forests 2011), the United Nations Forum on Forests Secretariat (UNFFS) is working in collaboration with the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival to organize an International Forest Film Festival (IFFF).
The IFFF will showcase a selection of forest films as part of the global launch of Forests 2011 taking place at UN Headquarters in New York, and subsequently at other festivals and events the world. The film festival is a key part of our outreach efforts of Forests 2011, and would enable us to raise awareness on the importance of forests, their relationship with people and the planet we share, and consequently, to inspire a sense of personal responsibility/stewardship for a greener, more equitable, sustainable future.
The International Year of Forests, 2011 Film Festival: Working with well-established environmental film festivals, the United Nations Forum on Forests secretariat will promote film screenings focused on the International Year theme of “Forests for People”. This would include screenings at United Nations facilities and various locations.
