why climate change?

Climate change and the dramatic rise of extreme events are increasing inequalities between and within countries, impacting health, food security, livelihood, migration, water supplies, cultural identities and other related issues. Climate change is not just a scientific or environmental issue, it is also societal and geostrategic.

As climate emergency affects us all without exception and requires urgent climate action, Sunny Side of the Doc gave the floor to twelve committed project holders looking for partners and funding for their next climate change focused documentary.

we were
looking for

This year, we were looking for stories that are important, powerful, original, committed and engaging, highlighting societal, economic, political, geostrategic and human issues, across a wide range of themes essential to the survival of our societies, including:

  • Impact on access to, management and preservation of natural resources, including water for both consumption and use in agriculture or industry;
  • Impact on agriculture;
  • Impact on populations, particularly the most precarious groups and minorities (climate refugees, conflicts, rise of nationalism, etc.);
  • Climate justice;
  • Geopolitical impact;
  • Concrete solutions to fight against climate change and its consequences.

We were also open to scientific or environmental approaches, preferring stories that include societal concerns or concrete solutions.
The call for projects is now closed.
