20th NaturVision Film Festival from 14 – 18 July 2021 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!
From 14 – 18 July 2021, we will be celebrating the 20th NaturVision Film Festival here in Ludwigsburg, Germany, as well as online. We would be delighted if you would join us by submitting your latest film for the chance to win one of our prestigious awards – not to mention a share of an estimated EUR 54,000 in prize money!
We have also just added a new award to our film competition: the NaturVision RETHINK Film Award. This category is open to films that depict a process of rethinking in politics and society and show positive examples. Subjects can range from responsible interaction with nature, wildlife and resources, right through to portraits of people who are calling for a fundamental rethink. Equally welcome are films that treat the theme "Rethink" artistically.
Films that were completed after 1 January 2020 can now be registered via the website: natur-vision.de/en/festival/wettbewerb/einreichformular
The closing date for entries is 29 January 2021.
We know that 2020 has been a particularly challenging year for filmmakers. So by way of solidarity, NaturVision is offering an Early Bird deal. For films submitted by 30 November 2020, there will be no entry fee.
There is also no entry fee for the NaturVision Newcomer Award category (on submission of a training certificate).
