2024 Short Film Lineup

Bright Toh: Unsung Hero

Bright Toh, a young visual artist from Cameroon, is on a journey to raise awareness about the plight of endangered species in his country. Using his incredibly striking art, he aims to educate people about the need to protect animals like pangolins and primates from threats such as bushmeat poaching and habitat loss.

The Beauty Between

The Great Salt Lake is often overlooked and misunderstood. Through her passion for wildlife photography, Mary Anne Karren unexpectedly fell in love with the lake’s unique landscape and the 10 million birds that rely on it. She now uses her photography to bring attention to the lake’s dire situation in an attempt to save it.

Spear, Spatula, Submarine

With an avaricious appetite, rapid reproduction rates, and no native predators, the lionfish invasion is one of the ocean’s greatest eco-disasters. But a community of passionate Floridians use creative removal methods to save the waters they love.

Chasing the Bono

The Kampar River in Sumatra, Indonesia boasts the world’s longest wave: a cyclical tidal bore known as “Bono Seven Ghosts” that can run over 13 miles long and be surfed for an hour-and-a-half. This film explores the relationship between the Kampar River and its surrounding communities, focusing on how surfing has strengthened this connection.

JoJo: A Toad Musical

“JOJO” celebrates a creative and musical portrait of JoJo Nyaribo, a young nature lover and wildlife advocate as he explores the meaning of biodiversity and stewardship in his own backyard.


Soundscape features Erik Weihenmayer, a global adventure athlete and author who is fully blind, as he ascends a massive alpine rock face deep in the Sierra Nevada. Using expert camera work and emotive, novel animation to bring to life a concept by adaptive climbing pioneer Timmy ONeill, the film is a surprising and soulful adventure.

The Tundra

Canada has the second-most wilderness on the planet.

We grew up in between the city and backcountry influenced by what we love – downtowns, outdoor hockey, polar bears, the cabin, hip hop, skate culture, and outside misadventures.

But, our creative inspiration always connects back to a simple source: the wild.

Antoni Gaudi, architect of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona said:
“Nothing is art if it does not come from nature.”

Desert. Forest. Ocean. Mountain.

Each offers a different opportunity for inspiration.

But, our first love is The Tundra.

This is our ode to it.

Brave Girl

Brave Girl is a strong young adventurer, who with the help of her grandpa is beginning her journey of finding out what it takes to climb mountains. Even though she’s only 6, she has an unwavering ambition to climb the biggest mountains in the world, starting with the ones in her backyard in Wyoming.

Forests Above & Forest Below

Take a deep dive into California’s unique and irreplaceable underwater kelp forests that have experienced catastrophic loss in the past decade. This piece was written and supported by scientists at The Nature Conservancy and was filmed and produced by the ColdWater Collective.

African Voices for Africa’s Forests: Gender, Indigenous Rights, and Restoration

Ewi Lamma, a young climate activist from Cameroon, has committed her life and work to changing the status quo by working with local communities, women, and youth. Her work inspires people to speak up and participate in local decision-making while protecting the environment and Indigenous knowledge.

Toxic Art

On a mission to clean up Ohio’s leaking, abandoned coal mines, Ohio University Art Professor John Sabrah teamed up with an engineer to develop a process that turns the toxic runoff pollution into paint. John’s artwork has been shown all over the world and proceeds have helped numerous environmental organizations and projects, including a new water treatment plant on the Sunday Creek Watershed.

When It Comes From The Earth

Canticuénticos, the Argentine music band always choose very important topics for children and families, sometimes not easy ones but always with lots of sensibility. This Colombian cumbia-based song has an important educational goal talking about the connection between Nature and humans. The conclusion is simple, if we do good things for Nature, it will be also good for us. The traditional papercut animation also shows practical steps to reach harmony.

6,000 Miles

In 6,000 Miles you’ll meet Kayla Lopez, a multifaceted artist and river activist, alongside Steve Evans, the impassioned Wild Rivers Director at CalWild. This compelling duo offers an exciting and educational exploration of California’s Wild Rivers, blending both expertise and passion to illuminate the essence and threats to our precious waterways.
