THANKS FOR KEEPING OUR WORLD ETHICAL & CLEAN BY DESIREE de MONTEBELLO – LIAISON OFFICER & SHERPA FOR EG3 PARIS FILM FESTIVAL – MEMBER OF THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE.
« EG3 PARIS FILM FESTIVAL focuses on improving Governance and greening the Economy.
This event will take place in PARIS from June 26 to 28, 2018 also includes a Workshop on « Film Making as a Driver for Green Growth & improved Governance ».
As you might remember, in september 2015, all world nations adopted a New Sustainable Development Program proposed by the UNITED NATIONS.
This Program was the follow – up to the Millennium Development Goals , adopted in 2000.
It did set 17 Sustainable Development Goals ( SDGs ) for 2030, broken down into 169 specific objectives designed to confront the major social and environmental problems the world is facing.
On top of the list of these SDGs which can be read as a road map for responding to these major transitions in an inclusive and sustainable way we have the following ones :
1. Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.
2. Take urgent measures to combat climate change and its impacts.
Acting as a Responsible Film Festival dedicated to Ethics, Governance and Green Growth, EG3 PARIS FILM FESTIVAL is – in some way – a Positive Response to the current situation and to the four major transitions – ecological, demographic, technological, and governance – our societies are undergoing.
At EG3 PARIS FILM FESTIVAL, we all believe that these four major transitions have long – term effects on our economies and require the implementation of a new socio – economic paradigm in order to respond to the SDGs as defined by the UNITED NATIONS.
Inspired by these SDGs, EG3 PARIS FILM FESTIVAL aspires to be the brand new Film Festival which empowers brillant Film Makers around the world to help solve the challenges facing Humanity today.
Over 100 films / documentaries / shorts in competition will be shown internally before our Screening Committee comes up with the final selection.
We very much look forward to discovering the submissions from innovative Film Makers that will contribute to shaping the world of tomorrow while offering sustainable suggestions with positive implications for the SDGs. »
