Submissions are now open, until May 15, 2022,  for films or artistic works in video format, between 90 seconds and 90 minutes, on the topic of geoscience. 

Best picture awards will be given to three themes, Dynamic Earth, Future Earth and Human Connection, for participants in the following categories: media professionals, professional geoscientists, students, Indigenous and First Nations, women in geoscience and the community. Submission is free via the FilmFreeway platform.

The Earth Futures Festival will take place throughout September and October 2022. In-person screenings and awards ceremonies will happen in New York City (24 September 2022), Paris (6 October 2022) and Sydney (14 and 15 October 2022, and live-streamed). 

The Earth Futures Festival is organised in collaboration with the UNESCO International Geoscience Program (IGCP) and the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS) and it aims to educate and inspire others, create diverse role models, motivate positive global change and attract a diverse range of people towards both study and careers in the field of geoscience.
