“Stung By Climate” Wins Best Short Film Award at CEFF

National Headquarters  |  February 19, 2016

The founder of the Colorado Environmental Film Festival (CEFF), Shawna Crocker, is a firm believer that “… films have a power to make changes.” Rodman Schley, the host of the CEFF 2016 Award Ceremony, concurred:

“There’s power in media. What a better way to use it then for environmental purposes. Bravo to you guys, the filmmakers of environmental documentary and film. That’s where the real change happens. It can educate hundreds and thousands of people, so you don’t have to do it one moment at a time.”

Tzu Chi USA produced documentary “Stung by Climate” is precisely such an impactful film, capable of influencing people on behalf of an environmental cause, and it was honored with the Best Short Film Award at the 10th Annual CEFF

The film’s director Nils Aucante attended the ceremony on February 18th, graciously accepted the award, then introduced the film before it was shown:

“My spirit of fighting for the bees really aligned with the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation based in Taiwan. They're fighting so hard for environmental protection worldwide. The founder, a Buddhist nun, her spirit is to inspire people to fight for the environment regardless of how you do it.”

The entire production team at Tzu Chi USA’s Media Production Center is grateful that the film was honored with this award, and will continue to spread Master Cheng Yen’s environmental protection message.

If you should be in Golden, Colorado, you can still see “Stung by Climate” which already screened twice, and will be shown once more on February 20th at 7:00 pm in the Foss Auditorium at the American Mountaineering Center, 710 10th Street.
