To the do-gooders of tomorrow

"Only what you know will you protect" - this is the guiding principle of GREEN SCREEN youth promotion. Because the preservation of species in an intact environment can only succeed if we recognize together with young people not only the beauty of our nature, but also the danger of its growing destruction.

GREEN SCREEN e.V. offers many ways for you to be part of Europe's most public nature film festival. Whether youth nature film camps, youth film awards, Juvenile jury or school cinema week - you can find out more here.

Youth film award

Who will be the next moviestar? You are a young filmmaker and up to 18 years old? Then you are invited to submit your own nature film for the GREEN SCREEN Youth Film Award. A professional jury will nominate the best films from all submissions. These will be shown and awarded at the International Nature Film Festival in September. There is a total of 1,000€ in prize money to be won in two categories and to make a name for themselves in the professional nature film industry.



Shoot an exciting nature or animal film yourself at the GREEN SCREEN youth nature film camps in the summer at Eekholt Wildlife Park (ages 13-18) and Multimar Wattforum (ages 14-20). Together with other young people, you will learn how to use a camera, editing programs and sound recording in an exciting environment under the guidance of professional filmmakers. The films can then be submitted to the Youth Film Award and, with a little luck, win one of the coveted prizes.

Green Screen’s Start into its 15th Season

In its 15th festival season, Green Screen will offer a large programme. Around 100 documentaries chosen from worldwide entries will be presented in Eckernfoerde from 4 - 12 September.
