Off the back of the biggest sustainability event in the region last year, the organisers of PHIST (Phuket Hotels for Islands Sustaining Tourism) 2019 have a message for all eco warriors: “Get down with digital and set the cameras rolling – with the filter set to green.
Green Beat 60 invites all ages to create 60-second videos on an environmental theme that really matters to them. Climate change, ocean plastic, deforestation, wildlife extinction, food shortages, soil degradation.
No special equipment is needed; any mobile device or digital camera will do. Drone shots are also welcome. So whether you’re a student with an exciting project, a school class saving the rainforest, colleagues curing climate change, or simply a hotel with a story to tell, we want to hear from you. Documentaries, sketches, skits, vlogs and music videos are all invited, as long as they don’t exceed 60 seconds.
Filmmakers will be judged in eight categories, ranging from primary school age to university students, families, community groups, hotels and more. The best film from each category will be screened at PHIST 2019, the sustainability forum that is expected to attract over 1,000 tourism and hospitality delegates from across Southeast Asia on September 23rdat Hilton Arcadia Phuket. The top three entries will receive prizes, including THB65,000 (approx. US$1,600) worth of retail and hospitality vouchers, and the best film will win the Green Beat Best Film Award.
An exciting new generation of eco warriors is emerging – let’s listen to them! Help us beat the green drum and save the Earth! To discover more about Green Beat 60, please visit phist.phukethotelsassociation.com/green-beat-60
