The Official Selection of the best short films was showcased at GLP and ITB Berlin’s popular “6th Annual Short-Film Showcase” at ITB Berlin.

The Official Selection of short films spanned 5 continents and covered diverse sustainability-related themes from wildlife conservation and adventure travel to cultural heritage, gender equality, community tourism, and more.
