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.
The Foundation launches the fifth edition of the We Art Water Film Festival, whose presentation will take place during the 67th edition of the San Sebastian International Film Festival.
The registration period will be open from the 2nd October 2019 to the 2nd April 2020. Once the jury has selected the finalists, which will be announced on the 4th May 2020, the public will be able to vote for their favourite short film through Facebook and the competition’s website.
The winners will be announced during the month of May 2020 at the award ceremony held at the emblematic Roca Madrid Gallery.
