PriFest is partnering with Bechtel Enka to encourage young people in Kosovo to think about environment and concerns that they may have regarding this issue. The festival, scheduled to happen on 22-29 April 2016, in Prishtina, is opening up a competition for young people to show their creativity and produce films with the main focus on environment issues and problems that Kosovo is facing.
Green Film Project is the film project that involves young people to create their own story into a short film of 30 seconds up to 3 minutes long that will have as a main theme an environmental issue or problem that they can identify and make a creative story out of it. The story must be related to environment issues that are of concern in Kosovo. This will intrigue young people to show in a creative way any concerns that they have for environment in their own towns within Kosovo. Eligible to participate are Kosovan students of secondary school and university aged 16 and above up to 30 yrs old. The films can be done with the smart phone camera or with any other camera or format.
