This International Film competition has the aim to promote the topic of health and environment and especially the topic of climate change and/or environmental health of children worldwide. The competition is open both for professionals in the film world or for students from the international film schools. But also for young non-professionals. There will be a specific category for these film or video makers. An international jury will select submitted films for nominated film sessions. We are also aiming to have films to be shown at the Leids Filmfestival in Leiden, the Netherlands. Besides the cash prizes, and the showing at an international film festival, the prizewinning films/video will be shown at some specific conferences worldwide.
INCHES was established by a group of organizations including representatives of NGO’s, universities, World Health Organization, U.S Environment Protection Agency and the European Environment Agency in 1998 in Amsterdam at the first International Conference on Children’s Environmental Health.
