The WFF launches the third edition of its Film Festival

The World Food Forum is pleased to announce the launch of its Third Annual Film Festival! The short film competition has been successfully run for two years, including the first in person awards ceremony held at the FAO Headquarters in Rome in 2022. This year, the competition will feature five categories, a cash prize of USD 1 000 and a special possibility for films to be featured on board Italy’s top airline, ITA Airways.

Are you a young filmmaker who wants to tell the world stories that will inspire behavioural change and play an essential role in transforming our agrifood systems? Now is the time to submit your short film. We are looking for inspiring stories, both fiction and non-fiction, that will trigger a positive impact in the areas of food security, nutrition, gastronomy and more to facilitate agrifood systems transformation.

For this short film competition, the WFF is looking for filmmakers who will:

  • Raise awareness of, and create greater interest in, issues relating to agrifood systems, such as food security, healthy diets, planet friendly agriculture, food supply chain imperfections, food loss and waste, sustainable packaging, the impact of the agrifood sector on people’s lives, sustainable socio-economic development and more,
  • Promote new and innovative solutions to address the challenges facing agrifood systems,
  • Celebrate the work of inspiring people who, from farm to fork, participate in making healthy food available on everyone’s plates,
  • Highlight the 2023 WFF theme: Food Action Accelerates Climate Action.

The directors of the six winning films will receive a cash prize and their films will be featured during the World Food Forum flagship event in Rome from 16 to 20 October 2023, allowing the artists to promote their work, gain visibility and network with global participants.
