International Day of Forests Film Competition

Our Stories

To celebrate the United Nation’s International Day of Forests (21 March 2020) and inspired by the theme ‘Forests and Biodiversity: Too Precious to Lose’, OneFortyOne announced a Limestone Coast school student film competition and the results are in. Now in its second year OneFortyOne’s film competition encouraged students to create a short video that showcases the biodiversity of our local forests.

We were thrilled to receive over 30 fantastic videos from students across the region. Thank you to everyone who entered. We hope you enjoyed spending time in nature – we certainly loved watching all of your films.

OneFortyOne acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their deep connections to land, water, and community. We pay our respect to Elders past and present and extend that respect to all First Nations people today.

In Aotearoa New Zealand, Māori communities have a strong spiritual connection between people and the land – the wellbeing of one sustains the wellbeing of the other. We strive to build meaningful relationships with iwi as tangata whenua (people of the land/region), to be responsible intergenerational kaitiaki (stewards/guardians) of the land where our forests grow.
