Forests for People: United Nations International Short Film Contest

We’ve entered our music video “Beaver Pond Forest” into the United Nations International Short Film Contest, run by the United Nations Forum on Forests Secretariat and Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival. The film festival is meant to demonstrate how vital forests are to people, with films portraying people’s personal relationships with forests. Of course, we thought Beaver Pond Forest would be perfect. Just look at the lyrics for the song. Wish us luck!

Here’s our entry for the United Nations International Short Film Contest (shortened to meet contest rules):

And of course, our single Beaver Pond Forest is also our entry into CBC Music’s Searchlight competition for the Nunavut region. Don’t forget to vote for us every day! Vote here:http://music.cbc.ca/#/Searchlight-Qulliq.
