How many screenings do you have in extra activities in addition to the festival?

For several years now, the Deauville Green Awards have taken action to bring committed audiovisual creation to a wider audience.

The festival organizes public screenings in the presence of production teams and scientific experts in Deauville, but also in schools and high schools throughout Normandy, during the year.

At the same time, the festival is putting the spotlight on the young generation of committed filmmakers and video artists through two competitions:

> Young Norman Video Competition: a competition of mini-films dedicated to social networks for Norman creators from 12 to 25 years old, focusing on their view of ecological news.

> Young Creative Awards competition: an international competition for filmmakers under 30 years old who are activists for ecology, gathering 500 films each year.

Other non-cinematographic activities of the festival: panels, conferences, etc.

Through the screening of the 100 finalist films of the annual competition in the presence of the teams, numerous workshops and expert round tables, the festival inspires and gives the tools to scientists and makers as well as producers, broadcasters and advertisers to speak with sincerity about the environmental and societal issues we are facing.

In the Innovation marketplace, festival-goers can meet audiovisual and sustainable development exhibitors who share innovative and eco-responsible shooting, post-production and digital solutions.

The festival is the meeting place for the advertising, corporate communication, fiction and documentary communities that are committed to social and ecological responsibility.

Between producers, advertisers and broadcasters, more than 400 professionals from these worlds meet in Deauville each year: ADEME, BBC, Canal +, FranceTV, UN, Orange, SNCF, Véolia, WWF, ZDF, etc.

Tailor-made appointments, cocktails and evening meetings are organized to facilitate meetings with your prospects, service providers and future employees.

Also, each year, the pitch sessions allow the curation and the birth of collaborations around committed and original film projects, pre-selected by the festival.

The professional press is mobilized on the event, with dozens of journalists attending: l’ADN, BBC, CB News, France Télévisions, Influencia, Ouest France, Stratégies, Mouvement UP, Ushuaia TV, ZDF, etc.
