Time to shoot a movie

PHUKET, 10 July 2019: Phuket Hotels Association has launched ‘Green Belt 60’ a green-theme video contest’ that claims to be the first in Asia to focus on a destination’s conservation and the environment efforts.

Anyone with a smartphone can enter with the chance to win over THB50,000 in prizes.

In addition, the winner will have 60 seconds of fame as their short film is shown in front of 1,000 eco-warriors at the upcoming PHIST 2019 event in Phuket this September.

Following the biggest sustainability event in the region last year, the organisers of PHIST (Phuket Hotels for Islands Sustaining Tourism) 2019 have a message for all eco-warriors: “Get down with digital and set the cameras rolling – with the filter set to green.”

No special equipment is needed; any mobile device or digital camera will do. Drone shots are also an option.

Filmmakers will be judged in eight categories, ranging from primary school age to university students, families, community groups, hotels and more.

The best film from each category will be screened at PHIST 2019, the sustainability forum that is expected to attract over 1,000 tourism and hospitality delegates from across Southeast Asia 23 September at Hilton Arcadia Phuket.
