The 2019 Climate Change Film Festival, hosted by the UW School of Environmental and Forest Sciences and EarthLab, submissions have been received and a screening of the top contenders is set.

At 6 p.m. on Friday, May 3 at Impact Hub Seattle, the top finalists’ short films will be screened and a panel of local expert filmmakers and scientists will announce the winners and award over $7,000 in prizes. Those in attendance will get to choose their favorite, too. RSVP to the Film Festival here.

This year, the festival’s prompt was, “We asked students in Washington state to create a 2-minute short film that answers our prompt: Together we can tackle climate change. What would it take to turn the tide?”

Contestants, families, artists and the general public are all welcome. There will also be a free raffle, local food and drinks for attendees. To learn more about the Climate Change Film Festival, visit the website.
