After its first year which attracted more than 180,000 spectators and collected more than 30,000 votes, the Greenpeace Film Festival is back from 14 to 28 January 2019.
100% on-line, the Festival aims to raise public awareness of environmental concerns and to highlight positive initiatives. Over 2 weeks, the Festival will offer free access to 15 documentaries which tackle various environmental themes such as climate, food, agriculture, over-consumption and deforestation as well as lesser-known issues such as land grabbing and the financialization of nature.
All the films are accessible free of charge on-line for the duration of the Festival.
You are the jury!
From 14 to 28 January, watch the 15 films in competition free of charge and vote for your favourite documentary.
At the end of the Festival, the film with the highest number of votes will receive the People’s Award and will then be screened in several French cities. Last year, projections of the winning film Empathy were organised in 18 towns and cities. These events are an opportunity to hold meetings and debates with the public on the theme of the documentary.
A fun and educational event
The Greenpeace Film Festival stems from a need to gain a better understanding of the environmental challenges of our era and to find out ways to take action. An awareness-raising tool on ecology and responsible consumption, the Festival’s website also gives tips for everyone which are very easy to adopt to change habits, behave in ways that respect the planet more or to make a greater commitment to environmental protection.
Educational activities are available for lower and upper secondary classes on request, an original and fun way of raising young people’s awareness of protecting our planet.
