The We Art Water Film Festival is an international short-film competition organised by the We Are Water Foundation, which aims to recognize and reward the talent of all those people with a clear awareness of the water problem around the world which are also able to capture it in their own film productions.
The main objective is to raise awareness of the water problem around the world through the creation of audio visual pieces that address this issue.
After the success of previous editions, the Foundation launched the 4th edition of the We Art Water Film Festival, whose presentation took place within the framework of the 65th San Sebastian International Film Festival. The registration period lasted several months and was closed on the 3rd April, with participation numbers that broke all records and reconfirmed the festival as a reference point in the dissemination of messages on the global problem of water.
In this edition, there were 2400 registered participants from 127 countries in the five continents in this edition. India leads the list with 138 registered videos, followed by countries such as: Spain, Bangladesh, Russia, Nigeria or Nepal. They have all created stories about the reality of the lack of water resources and sanitation all around the world.
The winners were announced in June 2018 at the award ceremony that was held at the emblematic Roca Madrid Gallery with the attendance of many personalities linked to the world of water and cinema.
As in previous editions, the finalist pieces of the competition are disseminated through different platforms, such as the website and social media, and are screened in the Roca Gallery spaces in Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, Shanghai, Beijing and London.
