1- The Festival

PEFF is a great resource for educating, inspiring and motivating the audience. We have created a space for reflection and discussion about the difficulties our Earth faces today.
The committee will select feature films and short films, both documentary and fiction and animation, which will take part in the competitive and in the non-competitive section of the festival. A renowned jury will present an award to the most distinguished films.
In addition, the registration for the festival is free.

Those films that do not refer to environmental topics will be excluded from the festival.

2- Registration & Selection

The registration of the films can be done in two ways:

- By the online platform “FESTHOME”
- By filling out the form from the website of the festival. (www.patagoniaecofilmfest.com)

Films which have been done after January 1st 2017 will be able to participate in the competitive sections. We will accept different genres such as documentaries, fiction or animation.
The decisions made by the jury will be not subject to appeal. The selection of the films will be announced in August 2019.

Call for entries will be open from February 18 to June 15 2019.
