Films competing in the CMS VATAVARAN are of extremely high standards and the Jury had difficulty in selecting the winners. Initiatives like CMS VATAVARAN help environmental films find a regular place in the media’s agenda and does a great deal for creating environment awareness.

• Embassy of Norway, once again, takes pride in being the Principal Partner of CMS VATAVARAN this year.
It is due to Norway’s commitment to environmental conservation and sustainable development that the Norwegian Embassy in India has been partnering with CMS for the last few years with their Film Festival initiative. We see the festival growing, not only in size but also in significance.

The efforts of CMS VATAVARAN are commendable. It has successfully organised this international film festival by bringing together films that talk about nature. We need to work together and take these films to the people to sensitise them for a lasting impact.
