Enter Now! NERRS FilmFest 2021

Aug 9, 2021 | NERRS Annual Meeting, Reserves

We’ve extended the deadline: Entries for this year’s NERRS Filmfest are now due by October 20.

Our annual meeting may be virtual, but we’re still rolling out the red carpet with prizes, Facebook Premiere on Friday, November 12th at 6PM ET, and eternal fame and glory on NERRA’s Youtube channel!

This year we’re introducing a new category: change communications. We know the System is filled with creative NERRds who are always thinking about better ways to communicate about climate change and its impact on the places we love. We want you to wow us with films that show how Reserves are changing and showcase the work you do to make them and coastal communities more resilient.

Not only will submitting your film make you a superstar in the eyes of NERRds everywhere, but there will be prizes! All Filmfest contestants will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a DJI Mini 2 Fly More Combo drone, compliments of NERRA and Roca Communications. Premiere participants also can compete to win a piece of NERRA swag.

The contest is open to all non-professional videographers. Films should be less than 5 minutes and can be clips from longer films. The goal is to highlight Reserves, our partners, and the amazing coastal resources we protect. Film selection will be by a panel of judges.

The stakes have been raised, so don’t forget Jace’s tips for a great video:

  • Keep your camera steady
  • Use a tripod
  • Take lots of short clips
  • Have the sun behind you
  • Take more footage than you need
  • Be creative!

Contact Jennifer Plunket or Jace Tunnell if you have any questions or if you’re interested in being a judge at this year’s FilmFest – we’re looking for volunteers.
