After a record 565 film proposals from 75 countries, the 14 finalists’ films  for this year’s tvebiomovies competition are being screened at COP19 today. Audiences not at the venue can watch the videos through YouTube, and are encouraged to participate in the vote to find the final winners.

The UNEP prize for Climate Change asked, in terms of money, biodiversity and our very survival, it is more expensive to ignore climate change than to act now, why aren't we doing more?

Films in this category addressed the following questions:

  • Are humans incapable of thinking long term, or can we pop our bubbles and act?
  • Is a future without renewable energy possible, or even imaginable?
  • In May, carbon dioxide levels in the Earth's atmosphere reached the highest levels ever. We know the fate of the dinosaurs - if we don't change our ways, will our destiny be the same?
