The GOING GREEN FILM FESTIVAL encourages green filmmaking by rewarding filmmakers who have lessened their carbon footprint on the planet during production, used alternative transportation within the storyline of their films, or have created a film whose subject includes the environment, third world issues, food, wildlife, etc.

The Going Green Film Festival has also created the DIGITAL GREEN PROJECT (www.DigitalGreenProject.com), a way for filmmakers to produce and creen green-produced shorts.
