Our vision is simple: not only encourage, but have a hand in producing greened films. This project allows us to spotlight those films and filmmakers.
Although we have announced our Official Selections for 2013, filmmakers from around the world still have an opportunity to participate in the festival.
How does the Digital Green Project work? Filmmakers submit a short film script, budget, crew information for consideration. The script can be of ANY subject, ANY genre. They must agree, however, to shoot the film digitally (whether from a digital camera, their smart phone, etc.) They must also agree to a $5000 or under budget, to green-produce their film; meaning they take the environment into consideration during all phases of production; from not using plastic bottles, to using non-toxic paint and reclaimed wood for sets, etc. Example guidelines to follow are given to the filmmakers and also available on the Producer's Guide of America's Green Production Guide website.
Three projects will be selected for crowd-funding;

About Going Green Film Festival:
The Going Green Film Festival is the only festival of it's kind that not only encourages "green" filmmaking, but rewards it. GGFF aims to spotlight those who are working to preserve our planet through entertainment and help inspire other filmmakers to adopt green practices and build greater awareness of social and environmental issues.
The Going Green Film Festival (GGFF) is a fundraiser for the Minorities in Broadcasting Training Program, (http://www.theBroadcaster.com) a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization formed in 1992 to provide training opportunities to college graduates in TV/radio news reporting, news management and film/TV production.
