A virtual fire ecology film festival is being hosted in conjunction with the FireAcross Boundaries webinar series this fall. Submissions are invited for the following types of films:
- Documentary video on fire ecology and management
- Videos of fire events that illustrate a relevant fire ecology-suppression issue
- Promotional videos of projects involving fire ecology and management
- Institutional videos to educate citizens about fire ecology and management
All films will be posted on a dedicated webpage; participants will be encouraged to discuss the films in the comments section and vote upon their favorite films. Top films will then be invited to participate at the in-person Film Festival that is planned for the Fire Ecology Across Boundaries: Connecting Science and Management conference in October 2021.
As this event is online, there are not limitations on film length. Any type of film is eligible for submission, including professional and amateur movies, already published or unpublished.
Submissions due by September 28.
