Film festival submissions

The fourth annual EcoFocus Film Festival will take place March 23-31 in Athens and is accepting film submissions until Sept. 15.

EcoFocus is open to films of any genre or style as long as they relate to environmental topics. Films may be submitted in one or more of three categories: environmental features (generally 50 minutes or more, but films longer than 20 minutes also will be ­considered); short environmental films (20 minutes or less); and family ­programming (any length).

There is no fee to submit films for the 2012 festival. More details, including complete instructions and an online entry form, are available at

 EcoFocus, an initiative of the Odum School of Ecology, presents top-quality environmental films in conjunction with special events including panel discussions, filmmaker question-and-answer sessions and interactive opportunities for audience members.
