The All Living Things Environment Film Festival (ALT EFF) has crowned Jason Momoa’s produced film ‘Deep Rising’ and Luke Griswald-Tergis’ ‘Pleistocene Park’ as its top winners in a celebration of cinematic portrayals addressing crucial environmental and climate change themes.

ALT EFF, dedicated to shedding light on critical environmental issues through the cinematic lens, is showcasing over 60 films from 50 countries across 20 cities in India until December 19.

Momoa’s ‘Deep Rising,’ directed by Matthieu Rytz, claimed the prestigious title of Best International Feature, PTI reported.

The film delves into the burgeoning interest in seabed metal extraction for global energy demands, unraveling ecological concerns associated with the process.

Meanwhile, ‘Pleistocene Park,’ directed by Luke Griswald-Tergis, earned the coveted Best of the Festival award from the Habitat Trust.

The documentary follows the journey of a Russian scientist and his son as they strive to recreate an ice-age ecosystem in Siberia.

Within the Indian cinema category, ‘Against the Tide’ by Sarvnik Kaur and ‘The Leopard’s Tribe’ by Miriam Chandy Menacherry emerged as the best Indian features.

‘Against the Tide’ portrays the conflict between traditional fishing practices and modern technology within Mumbai’s Koli community. On the other hand, ‘The Leopard’s Tribe’ captures the protests against the Aarey metro car shed project in Maharashtra.

The festival also recognized ‘From Dreams to Dust’ by Stephanie Tangkilisan and Muhammad Heri Fadli, awarded the Best International Short. This film confronts the darker facets of green technology, spotlighting the hazards of nickel mining, a critical component in electric car batteries.

Additionally, films like ‘No Water, No Village,’ ‘Feeling the Apocalypse,’ and ‘The Egret River’ received accolades, contributing compelling narratives and insights into environmental challenges.

The festival’s diverse lineup of films underscores the power of cinema in raising awareness and sparking conversations on pressing environmental issues, captivating audiences with poignant storytelling and thought-provoking messages.
