The second edition of the Deauville Green Awards will be held from April 16 to 18, 2013. This international festival, dedicated to corporate and TV films about ecology and sustainable development, aims at promoting good practices through audio-visual communication from companies, institutions and local authorities that have made a commitment toward the environment.
In 2012, the festival’s jury awarded the grand prize for best audio-visual environmental corporate policy to Light Close to Everyone, a German film sponsored by SIEMENS AG and produced by LavaFilms, and the grand prize for best audio-visual environmental institutional policy was awarded to the Belgian film Pour une région en mouvement, sponsored by the city of Brussels and produced by DoubleDouble. The event took place in some of the most prestigious locations in the city of Deauville (Salon des Ambassadeurs, Villa Le Cerle, Villa Strassburger). Leaders in the audio-visual communication industry benefited from these great venues to meet and exchange ideas on their respective projects.
Building on the success of this first edition, the organisers are already announcing the call for films for the 2013 edition of the Deauville Green Awards.
