18th NaturVision Film Festival from 11 – 14 July 2019 in Ludwigsburg, Germany.
NaturVision is Germany's longest-running nature film festival, focusing on the natural world, wildlife, the environment and sustainability. Over four days we showcase powerful and absorbing nature and wildlife films on the big screen. We want to allow our viewers insights into unfamiliar worlds, inform them and reveal interrelationships and effects, so that they become aware of and inspired by nature and the environment. At the same time it is our wish to provide a forum for the genre, so as well as big productions there is also room in our programme for small filmic gems.
Unforgettable film images, emotional moments, critical information: NaturVision is THE film festival for nature and the environment. With our international film competition, each year we showcase the latest films around nature, wildlife and the environment, honouring the best among them with prestigious awards. NaturVision brings the beauty of nature to the big screen, shows the vulnerability of our world, and reports on new and promising solutions for environmental issues. NaturVision stands for the art of film, sustainability and future-proof development. NVision the future!
Our Short Film Award – supported by Audi’s environmental foundation Audi Stiftung für Umwelt GmbH – is back for the second year running, this time with the theme "Recycle, not ruin – Nature leads the way". The category invites films that deal with the concept of "cradle to cradle". Potential topics range from recycling, upcycling, the sharing economy and forward-thinking product development, right through to C2C in architecture and urban planning. Of course we also welcome animated films, wild visions and fun ideas! The award is open to both professional and amateur filmmakers over 18 years of age with films up to 30 minutes long. Films submitted for the Short Film category can also have a completion date before 1 January 2018. The award carries a prize of €5,000!
