You are the key to the success of the We Art Water Film Festival. Thanks!
The voting period of public and jury has ended and the awards of the fifth edition of the We Art Water Film Festival are now a done deal.
The jury has already deliberated and shortly we will announce the date and format of the awards ceremony, during which we will reveal the names of the winners. It will depend on the evolution of the pandemic. Meanwhile, the 45 finalists propose a fascinating journey to the reality of water.
The development of this fifth edition has been marked by Covid-19. The lockdowns and the difficult health crisis we are experiencing have meant an additional challenge to the shooting of the short films, but it has not affected the creativity of filmmakers and their passion for the world of water; the exceptional quality of the pieces and the increase in participation are proof of it.
Once again, this edition has broken all records. Over 3,300 participants mean an increase of nearly 40 % compared to the previous edition. The number of countries has also increased, reaching 131, proving that the proposal of the We Are Water Foundation continues to cross borders and the language of filmmaking is powerful and universal. Each piece explains a way of seeing the world from the perspective of water and nature and we all need each one of these experiences and ideas to continue moving towards sustainability.
While we await the announcement of the winners, we would like to take this opportunity to tell you how immensely grateful we are. To those of you who have participated and voted, to those who have collaborated by encouraging us to continue, providing ideas and resources, you have made the We Art Water Film Festival the great achievement it is today and you have added value to water… you really are the key to our success. Thank you!
