Film Competition

Dear Filmmaker!

We are screening solution-oriented, constructive and positive films related to sustainability and environment from all around the world. Topics may include recycling, agriculturetransition, energy, greenbusiness, greendesign, mobility, sustainable cities, consumption, biodiversity, tourism, health, society, mindfulness or climate change.

Along with the inspiring feature and short movies under the general theme sustainability and environment, this year we have a prize for the the special topic ?Green Growth or De-Growth??. Is greening the economy via technological advancements without disturbing the current cultural structures going to save mankind? Or do we need to have a deeper structural change by changing the direction of the economic growth?

Short films (up to 20 minutes) from our international short film competition and selected documentaries (20-120 minutes) will be shown on the festival weekend. We award the best short film, the best film with the special topic ?Green Growth or De-Growth?? and the audience favorite. Furthermore, we also screen movies as bicycle cinema in Freiburg schools where kids and teachers paddle their bikes to produce the electricity for the projector.

We are looking forward to your inspiring, positive and solution oriented movies!
