Check out the GEFF 2022 PROGRAM 3 * URGENT SHORTS here
Curated by Esther Figueroa
The Urgent Shorts Program offers 50 publicly available short films – documentaries, news programming, activist media – that are dealing with urgent issues affecting often overlooked people, revealing the destructive impacts of extractive industries beyond Africa, particularly in Oceania. The Urgent Shorts focus on our forests and oceans, the urgent threats of deforestation, community attempts to save existing forests while growing new ones, learning ways we can better grow the food we eat such as permaculture and food forests, the urgent threats facing our oceans including deep sea mining, the extraction of ‘exotic’ fishes to be kept in aquariums, and plastic pollution.
Urgent Shorts includes an Al Jazeera series on the US military occupied islands of Hawai’i and the land, water and livelihood crises of Native Hawaiians, investigative reporting by news outlets about deep sea mining, and a series of educational shorts about deep sea mining disseminated by Fiji-based Indigenous organization Pacific Network on Globalisation – shorts that show individuals, families and communities remembering and perpetuating traditional forms of sustainable agriculture while adding place specific innovations.
