In conjunction with Polar Week 2017, USAPECS is announcing the second annual Polar Film Fest 2017 from 18 - 22 September 2017. This year's theme is #PolarWorld, so we're looking to showcase the best the planet has to offer in movies about the Arctic, Antarctic, and wider cryosphere - no matter what language they're in.
We're looking for film suggestions that fit any of the following themes:
1) #PolarWorld: Polar Issues are Global
2) Science in Action: Working in Extremes
3) People at the Poles: The Human Dimension
4) Polar Policy: Preparing for the Future
5) Icing on the Cake: Frozen Fun
Film eligibility and submission
We invite you to please submit your suggestions by August 25 through the Google Form we've set up. Films may be original or produced by someone else. To submit your own film, upload it to a video sharing site (i.e., YouTube or Vimeo) and submit the link, along with a description of the film and a note indicating that you made the film, on the submission form. Films produced by others must be available publicly online. Films that can be watched for free are preferred, but please do not submit links to illegal streaming websites.
In-person and virtual watch parties
Spread the word!
Please share this email and the below graphic with your networks. The more submissions we have, the better.
For more information and to submit films, go to the Polar Film Fest 2017 page.
