2015 Awards

We are very excited to announce the winners of the 2015 Visions of Nature/Voices of Nature Awards. We had an exciting festival, with packed theaters, and appreciative audiences.

Our guest speakers informed and entertained us, and their films exposed us to new ways of thinking about our connections with the natural world. Our awards this year recognize films that were able to educate at the same time as they entertained and surprised audiences, provoking strong reactions and insightful questions.
