An international panel of experts awards the most impressive films of recent years in the fields of nature, the environment, travel and tourism. A combination that has been chosen as a sustainable combination of these sectors is becoming increasingly important for modern society.
Award-winning German filmmaker Andreas Ewels says: "People will only protect what they know and respect, so travel and the spirit of discovery are very important. But exploring must be done carefully and sustainably, so that we do not destroy everything by discovering our world. We only have one planet."
Filmmakers who recognize and implement this will have an important impact on the future development of our world and will gain an important forum with NATOURALE.
The NTFF has its origin in the NATURFILMNÄCHTE WIESBADEN. Two to three times a year, German nature and environmental filmmakers show their works here and discuss with the audience. The great success of this series of events has now motivated the makers to take the next step and, with the NATOURALE, now with the new festival international filmmakers have the chance to present themselves to the public in the state capital of Hesse, Wiesbaden.
The NATOURALE is a film festival for documentaries, reports, commercials and feature films from the fields of nature, the environment, travel and tourism. Submitted films are intended to document the beauty of our planet or to point out abuses in this context. Films from the areas of tourism and travel are given special consideration if they are committed to sustainable and environmentally friendly tourism. Film submissions are only possible under consideration and recognition of the regulations. Please read them carefully.
To submit, please use the attached form or submit your works directly via Filmfreeway. Deadline: September 01, 2020.
The Hessian Lion is a cult and one of the most famous works of art, which are in direct contact with the state of Hesse. It was created by the world-famous concept artist Prof. Ottmar Hörl. The lion, also a symbol of courage, strength, wisdom and alertness, is the ideal trophy for the special achievements of the NATOURALE-Award-Winners. For the festival Prof. Ottmar Hörl produces a specially inscribed pedestal for the lion sculpture, which defines it as a unique NATOURALE-Award.
Invited award winners will receive 2 overnight stays in one of our partner hotels for the duration of the festival. Included is also a program for the award winners. This includes an exciting tour of the state capital Wiesbaden.
Furthermore there are 5 special prices. These are designed by the extraordinary artist Darina Schmidt from Hesse. Since 2013, she has made a name for herself through unique animal graphics. For our festival, she puts her art prints in connection with a certificate and refines it behind glass.
The awarding of the special prizes is possible in the following categories and is arranged on the recommendation of the jury. A film can get several awards. The following special prizes can be awarded:
