Each year a festival, supported by the GFN, hosts the “GFN Award” taking charge of the organization and the prize.
Each GFN’s member presents a documentary, chosen from his last edition and produced in his own country, to show the diversity and the strength of environmental documentary creations around the world.
An international jury has to watch the films on a private platform and award one of the documentaries.
Planet in Focus, Canada’s foremost and longest running environmental film festival, is honoured to be hosting the 4th Annual International Green Film Network Awards, 2017.
