The Philippines is one of the most vulnerable countries to the impacts of climate change, including sea level rise, increased frequency of extreme weather events, rising temperatures and extreme rainfall, among others. Since climate change poses risks to the environment and to humanity, it is imperative to communicate the importance of climate change adaptation and mitigation to arrest the catastrophic effects of climate change, especially to the youth.
It is in this context that the Climate Change Commission (CCC) is launching the Klima Film Festival (KFF), which aims to mainstream the effects of climate change through compelling storytelling and cinematic techniques. The KFF is being held in collaboration with the Oscar M. Lopez Center (OML Center) as part of its Balangay Project.
