The Climate Change Commission (CCC), the government’s lead policy-making and coordinating body on climate change, and the Oscar M. Lopez (OML) Center, a non-profit organisation focused on enhancing support for research and innovative solutions toward climate change adaptation and disaster risk management, is organising the Klima Film Festival, a project that seeks to tap into the creativity of the youth to advocate for climate action through short films.
The film festival aims to (1) generate information, education, and communication materials for raising awareness on the urgency of climate action and (2) mentor aspiring young filmmakers in developing five-minute to seven-minute short films following the theme Adapting for a Sustainable Future.
This project will contribute to the CCC’s continuing climate change advocacy and will form part of the OML Center’s Balangay Project which seeks to engage a broader network of stakeholders, including the youth, in the climate change discussion.
To encourage more youth to register in the KFF, the CCC and OML Center will spearhead the Klima Film Festival Digital Press Launch on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 via Zoom from 10AM to 11AM. The said event can also be streamed via Facebook Live through the Official Facebook Page of the Climate Change Commission at facebook.com/CCCPhl
Media practitioners are invited to join and register through this link: bit.ly/KFFPressLaunch
Joining the online event is Commissioner Rachel Anne S. Herrera and Dr. Rodel Lasco of the OML Center.
Ms. Scuba International 2019 2nd Runner Up Liz Mabao and Philippine Ambassador for Sustainable Development Goals No. 4, Global Goals Model United Nations Mac Ericson Cinco will also join us as moderators.
