The CMS Vatavaran is India’s only International Environment & Wildlife Film Festival and Forum and is an initiative of the Centre for Media Studies (CMS). Established in 1991, CMS is a not-for-profit, multi-disciplinary research organisation.

The 9th CMS Vatavaran festival took place between 2 and 6 November 2017 at Gandhi Smriti and Darshan Samiti, Rajghat, Delhi. The Delhi Greens Blog Project carried out pre-event, during event and post-event promotion of the CMS Vatavaran Environment & Wildlife International Film Festival and Forum. The event helped raise awareness about environmental challenges being faced by India today.

The five-day long 9th CMS Vatavaran Film Festival included not just Film Screenings from across the Indian sub-continent and the world, but also Seminars, Workshops, Exhibitions of Green & Eco-friendly products, in addition to award distribution to those who are contributing their part towards the protection and conservation of our common environment.

A total of 113 Environmental Films were screened during the 9th CMS Vatavaran Film Festival. The most interesting aspect of the Film Festival was the large participation from the youth, who are also the future leaders and who need to work to secure and protect their future. More than 2,000 school and college students and citizens from all walks of life participate in this five day long Film Festival.

The Delhi Greens Blog Project of the organisation attempts to partner with at least one National Event each year and will continue to partner with such national and international events in the future.
