It’s undeniable that humans have had a huge effect on the environment—but how much of an impact have we had and how does that affect our future? The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects in partnership with the National Museum of Australia and LA+ Interdisciplinary Journal of Landscape Architecture have launched the AnthropoScene short film competition for answers to that question in the form of a three to four-minute short film. Open to anyone from around the world, the contest seeks short film submissions that focus on the general subject of the Anthropocene, a proposed epoch that started when humans began to have significant global effect on the world’s geology and ecosystems. Judges will preselect six finalists, while the grandprize winner will be determined by popular vote at a public screening. The submission deadline is August 1, 2016.
