About Us

Initiated in 2001, CMS VATVARAN continues its endeavour to create awareness and engagement on complex environment and wildlife issues through the powerful medium of films. Through its 10 competitive film festivals and various other film competitions (as on 2020), it has received more than 3500 films from across India and across the world. Through rigorous process of peer review and Jury process around 750 films have been shortlisted and nominated for the prestigious CMS VATAVARAN Awards.

This Film Library has most of the nominated & Awarded CMS VATAVARAN films for preview. All details of each of the film is available, including poster, trailer on YouTube, brief synopsis and film maker profile. The list of films is also searchable by topic or category. For educational purposes, these are available on request for screening. CMS VATAVARAN will get the required permissions from the film maker and authorities for any non-commercial or commercial screenings.

The repository of films is an online resource and accessible for everyone. It will be a public facing document and hopefully will become a very useful resource for both commercial and public producers/broadcasters.
