GreenSpaceNYC Summer Showcase on Sustainability is a night of short films regarding sustainable causes and artistically conceived dire warnings.

A team of GreenSpaceNYC judges will vote to award films in the following categories: Best Doc Short, Best Narrative Short, and Best Short. Attendees will be asked to vote for an Audience Choice Award. After the judging, we will show an additional set of shorts, the Midnight Shorts Program, that ranges from the alternative to the bizarre, within sustainability themes.

The first grouping of shorts are those nominated for Best Documentary Short. Film topics from this group range from fracking to international farming practices.

The second group are those nominated for Best Narrative Short. Many of the films in this group deal with issues about environmental degradation and futures of hardship.

Our storefront is made possible by sponsors: Material for the Arts & Build It Green.
