“Quotes from the Earth”, a first of its kind environmental film festival in Delhi since 2004 calls for entries of films/ documentaries/ animations on the broader theme of environment like Earth, Water, Wildlife, Climate Change, Mining, Forest, Environmental Justice etc. The fifth in the series of the environmental film festivals aims at providing a discursive platform to highlight environmental challenges faced by people at the national and international level. Films are known to be one of the most powerful medium of communication and discussion and the festival hopes will be able to highlight pressing environmental issues in the right manner.
