About Green Shorts
The GSFF was founded in 2008 by Traffic Solutions and Community Environmental Council. It was created with the intention of bringing awareness to local environmental issues. In 2013 international film promoters, Film Skillet took the leadership role and opened the festival to filmmakers worldwide. We believe the current environmental issues facing humanity are a global problem. By working together we can find solutions.
Film Positive is a non-profit organization that focuses on raising awareness for social and environmental issues through the medium of film.
Welcome and introduction to event
Hi everyone, welcome to the 6th annual Green Shorts Film Festival. This year’s festival celebrates Local and International Filmmakers bringing awareness to environmental problems and offering solutions.
These films are about people from around the world who have recognized a problem or an injustice and made a difference. Their selfless actions have inspired thousands to stand up and create a healthy environment for themselves and future generations.
Our first presentation pays tribute to past Green Shorts Film Festivals. We want to give a special acknowledgement to Traffic Solutions and Community Environmental Council for all of their hard work and dedication to the festival.

We would like to give a special thanks to all of our filmmakers who submitted films to this event. Your dedication inspires us all to live a greener life.
This years winning film is Forests Keep Drylands Working by Julia Glenday
The local users choice goes to The Evolution of a Community Activist by Kathleen Good
Each year we focus on one local environmentalist who is doing a great job for our community. Chris Goldblatt heads off The Fish Reef Project, an organization that creates artificial reefs using environmental friendly products. The Man made reefs they design create habitat for Fish, Crustaceans, Kelp and numerous other marine creatures. This safe environment helps increase fish and marine populations creating a healthy ocean and a sustainable fishery. Please put your hands together for Chris.
5-minute speech about project followed by Chris’s film.
Submissions for the Green Shorts Film Festival came in from 12 different countries around the world. For tonight’s event we have selected films from 8 of those countries. These films bring awareness to local environmental issues and the individuals who have stood up to make a positive change.
Funny comment about A Love Story in Milk. Something about love and recycling?
Our feature film tonight is Wild Things, an environmental documentary Produced by the Natural Resources Defense Council ( NRDC ). We would like to give a special thanks to them for their hard work and dedication. This film is beautifully made but does contain some images that can be considered disturbing. Viewers who are highly sensitive or with children are advised.
