NUTV GREENLITE ARTS FESTIVAL hosts several events that are part of the green art movement, starting with a 48-Hour Eco Film Challenge and a Photography Competition. The festival’s mandate is to provide opportunities for participants to dialogue about environmental issues, develop technical skills, engage their creativity and facilitate the production of film and photographic work. The festival serves to jump start Earth Week and consists of various environmentally-themed activities including; digital photography competition; 48-hour film challenge; digital filmmaking workshops; environmental documentary screening with panel discussion; daily shorts exhibition; and, a closing gala. All activities are free or low-cost and open to student and community members.

NUTV challenges you to draw attention to the ecological challenges the world faces by participating in this innovative event at the University of Calgary. There is no charge to enter the Photography Competition and the 48-Hour Eco Film Challenge (singles welcome to sign up and be placed on a team). Become a part of the solution by contributing to a sustainable future (Everyone is welcome to participate).

No Camera? No Problem.

NUTV’s “Tools of the Trade” Artist Program (TTAP) will assist you by providing access to digital photography, film and editing equipment at no charge.
