Feds Spending $90,000 for Climate Change Film Festival in Mumbai


The State Department is planning to spend $90,000 for a film festival about climate change in India.

The U.S. Consulate in Mumbai issued a grant opportunity this month announcing its plans to fund a film training workshop to make movies about “Green Heroes” in the country.

“Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing the world today,” the State Department said in the grant announcement. “We have seen that many Indians are taking action to stop climate change and protect the environment in their neighborhoods and communities, but often their stories go untold.”

“This program will identify and showcase some of these unsung Green Heroes and enable up-and-coming storytellers to share these Green Heroes’ stories with broader audiences,” the State Department continued. “By training the next generation of documentary filmmakers to tell these environmental stories, we hope this generates broader support for initiatives to mitigate climate change and protect the environment.”
