Presentations, Trainings & Film Submissions

The Alaska Forum on the Environment (AFE) and Alaska Connect provides an unmatched platform to present on topics that address technical, educational, scientific, or general information on environmental issues.


We invite interested agencies, tribal governments, organizations, researchers, as well as individual participants to submit their presentations to present virtually through Alaska Connect, our new online training platform throughout the year.


  • Topics typically approved are educational in content and information-based
.
  • Share educational and informational environmental issues. Hot topic and controversial issues are accepted as long as presenters include a range of information that provides a full understanding of perspectives from all sides.
  • This year, presentations and trainings will take place weekly online through Alaska Connect, a new online training platform beginning in September 2020 through and go through December 2021.

Film Selection Process


The AFE Film Festival seeks any combination of inventive, incisive, innovational work that complements the Forum. Submissions should be high-quality productions worthy of placement in the Film Festival. All entries must be pre-screened for eligibility. Each is judged solely on its own merits for originality, quality, content, and adherence to conference themes. Acceptance is limited this year, due to the event being exclusively online.
