BIFF Partners With The Nature Conservancy

The Bahamas International Film Festival (BIFF) announces a new edition of the ‘GREEN REEL’ Film Program in cooperation with The Nature Conservancy. The Conservancy is sponsoring the ‘GREEN REEL’ competition for its third year to enable students to create documentaries that explore the environmental issues affecting The Bahamas.


BIFF invites school to be part of the film program during October 24 – 28. Students are introduced to the latest in digital technology and receive expert instruction from leading trainers.  Working in all the different jobs on a film set (Actor, Director, Sound and Lighting, etc), children learn the essentials of making a film from pre-production to editing all in one day.


The ‘Green Reel” Film Program announcement was made by BIFF Founder and Executive Director Leslie Vanderpool, who said "BIFF is always looking for ways to encourage young Bahamians to showcase their talents through film.”


Eleanor Phillips, Director of the Northern Caribbean Office of The Nature Conservancy here in The Bahamas stated “We at the Conservancy want to explore nontraditional avenues to spread the word about our conservation work and encourage youth of The Bahamas to tell us, through film, how they want the environment of the country to be in the future...”


Documentary Format / Length:

5-10 minutes in length. It may include dialogue and commentary.



All Films will be shown at BIFF and the winner will be given special recognition at the 2011 Bahamas International Film Festival and receive a BIFF Award along with a $500.00 cash prize award to the school.
