The Eco Preservation Society isn't forcing one to take extreme steps, but rather encouraging each of us to take a minumum of one eco friendly step toward becoming more sustainable. If most of us take one step then as a complete, we could make a substantial difference.

Environmental issues across South-East Queensland are the topic of films entered in the Cicada Film Festival (CFF) – a short film competition that is helping youth to be heard.

According to Wildlife Preservation Society Bayside Branch spokesperson Steve Homewood, youth have the most at stake in the actions and decisions of today so it’s important that their views are heard.

“Cicadas are small but noisy and we want youth to make a lot of noise about the environment, so get shrilling!” said Homewood, whose organisation initiated the Cicada Awards in 2011 and who’s been conducting the event ever since.

The CFF has again attracted generous sponsorship and has a prize pool of over $4,000 in cash prizes. Films must match criteria and are judged by a panel, including the 1st place winners from the previous year which gives them another opportunity to be heard.

There are two themes: Oceans and General, and two age groups: Under 14 and Open, 14 – 24 years.

Entries close on Monday, 7 September, Threatened Species Day – the day the last Tasmanian tiger died at Hobart Zoo.

Winners will be announced on Friday, 30 October.

Visit the Cicada Film Festival website for more information.
