Our international film competition launches on 17 September 2011

Volkswagen says it wants to be the most eco-friendly car manufacturer in the world. But it’s spending millions trying to stop laws to make cars more efficient and cut climate change emissions.

On September 17, Greenpeace is launching an international film competition. We need your help to expose the real VW – the one behind the billboards.

Help us turn the cameras on Volkswagen.

You’ll have two weeks from the launch date to make a one minute film on the competition brief. That brief is secret for now, but we promise you it’s going to make you want to fuse your creativity with your conscience.

The best films will be screened at a special event at the Curzon Soho in London (and you’ll be invited along). They’ll be seen by thousands of people around the world and be a key part of our climate campaign.

We have a prestigious panel of judges, and if your film is the winner you will be awarded a £5,000 budget to make Greenpeace’s next campaign movie.

Join us for the special launch event: 10am on Saturday 17 September at the Curzon Soho when we make public the competition brief (although you don't need to attend to enter).

If you want a reminder closer to the date and to receive a briefing pack on launch day, enter your email below.
