Film 5: Forests 4 Indonesia

This film will be a scripted film focusing on the benefits of sustainable forest management in Indonesia and explaining some of the long-term consequences of unchecked deforestation. It will explain the ways in which sustainable land management relates to the basic priorities of ensuring the legal and traditional rights of people, the protection of high conservation value (HCV) forest and endangered species, and the provision of clean air and clean water. The film will also include some of the processes involved in procuring sustainably produced non-timber forest products (e.g. fishing, rattan, honey). It will be translated into both Indonesian and English, and we anticipate that it will be approximately 5-10 minutes in length. This film will be used as a flagship film for the films4conservation website initiative.
