We Art Water Film Festival 5. The voting period is already open!

September 21, 2020

45 finalists! We can already see their 3-minute short films and vote for them. Despite Covid-19, participation in the festival and its international projection have dramatically grown: 3,362 registered authors from 131 countries. The outstanding quality of the pieces has forced the pre-selection committee to increase the number of finalists to 45.  

The voting period has already started. 10 of the 45 finalists are in the micro-fiction category, while another 10 are included in the micro-animation category and the remaining 25 in the micro-documentary category.  The outstanding quality of the pieces registered for this edition have exceeded all expectations, and therefore the pre-selection committee has decided to increase the number of finalists in the micro-documentary category to 25.  

The essence of the We Art Water Film Festival is to use the universal language of filmmaking to show there are as many ways of relating to water as inhabitants on the planet. The festival has succeeded in becoming a world benchmark in the communication of water and sanitation problems in a world with as many realities as people live in it.   

The selected pieces prove that it is possible to tell revealing and emotional stories about our relationship with water in three minutes. These are also a pool of ideas that invite to search for solutions to the serious problems that threaten us.  


3,362 authors from 131 countries, in spite of the pandemic

This fifth edition has been marked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Foundation extended the registration period in view of the production difficulties caused by lockdown restrictions. Despite this, 3,362 registered authors from 131 countries have, once again, broken all participation records (2,405 registrations from 127 countries in the previous edition). This is a clear sign that water, sanitation, climate and the environment are of increasing concern and that the film industry is the best tool to disseminate its reality.
