Shake up our cushy lives, open our eyes, make us laugh, cry or even outraged. #VOFF4 showcased 230 films about the world’s issues—big or small. We accepted entries about the environment, human rights, public health, politics, social justice or something entirely different that deserved attention.
YOU decided which filmmakers became finalists and with it, which of the causes have been presented to the Jury of Experts. In this edition, a portion of the total prize money (US$ 100,000) was donated to The Climate Reality Project , a charity founded by Al Gore, appointed by the filmmaker who won the Audience Award, Baja’s Secret Miracle.
