Short Documentaries: Planetary Health Film Lab | Winter 2020
In February 2020, seven emerging filmmakers from six countries came to the Dahdaleh Institute in Toronto to participate in the Planetary Health Film Lab. The Film Lab took these young filmmakers through an intensive five-day process to create a film which tells a story about the health impacts of climate change.
The Winter 2020 cohort of youth were the workshop’s first. The group includes environmental activists and emerging filmmakers from Canada, Australia, Ecuador, Colombia, India, and Italy.
All films are included in the Youth Climate Report, a partner program of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). They will be featured on the websites of the UNFCCC, the Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research and the Youth Climate Report.
The Planetary Health Film Lab is a collaboration between the Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research, Young Lives Research Laboratory and the Youth Climate Report.
This research was supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
