Martin Stringer wins Films for the Forest Audience Award
HOT OFF THE PRESS: MARTIN STRINGER WINS FILMS FOR THE FOREST AUDIENCE AWARD!
Rainforest Rescue is excited to announce that our media mogul, Martin Stringer, has won the Audience Award for Rainforest Partnership‘s Films for the Forest 2020 with his short film “Growing a Rainforest Community”.
Films for the Forest (F3) is an annual international short film challenge created in 2010 . Since 2012, winning F3 films have screened as part of the annual SXSW Community Screening. F3’s goal is to create awareness about the importance of tropical rainforests and the ongoing threats faced by forests and their communities, through the powerful medium of film.
This year F3 went virtual with an online screening to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, with audience members voting at the end of the screening for their favourite film, and we are delighted that Marty’s film was so well received.
“Growing a Rainforest Community” is more than just planting a rainforest, it is about reconnecting through culture, nature, and each other.
Congratulations on winning the Audience Award, Marty – we couldn’t be prouder. You’re a super star!
