GREENMOTIONS FILMFESTIVAL

05.11.2022 – 13.11.2022

The Greenmotions Film Festival has taken place annually in November in Freiburg im Breisgau since 2014. We mainly show films on the subject of environment and sustainability, but in recent years we have increasingly devoted ourselves to other topics such as awareness, mindfulness, psychology, sociology, art and feminism. 

We offer various solution-oriented and empowering long and short films, workshops, film talks and networking opportunities. Furthermore, bicycle cinemas will be organized in schools where the students will provide power to run the projector for the films by paddling their bikes as well as a bicycle-powered opening techno party. Greenmotions wants to open eyes, create awareness, move and inspire action!

In addition to the main topic “Beyond Sustainability”, we decided for this year’s edition on the special topicWomen – Activism – Environment.  You can find more information on this and on our film competition in our Call for Entries.

Come in large numbers and let yourself be inspired by the solution-oriented and constructive film screenings!

We look forward to you!

Film Competition

Dear Filmmakers!

Greenmotions inspires and encourages people to take active participation in the transition towards a regenerative culture in which humanity harmonises with the rest of the natural world.

For a lot of us there seems to be a gap between this vision and the reality of our daily lives. And that’s where your films come in.
We screen solution-oriented, constructive and empowering films dealing with the environment and beyond: consciousness | mindfulness | psychology | sociology | art.

Along with the inspiring feature and short films under the general theme ‘Beyond sustainability’, we have a yearly prize for the special topic:

2022 TOPIC: ‘Women – Activism – Environment

 

Selected inspiring documentaries/feature films (20-120 minutes) and the special topic ‘Women – Activism – Environment’ will be screened at the festival along with the best short films (up to 20 minutes) from our international short film competition. Furthermore, bicycle cinemas will be organised in schools where the students will provide power to run the projector for the films by paddling their bikes as well as a bicycle-powered opening techno party.

About us

In 2014 the Greenstorming Film Festival was first organized by students as part of their Master’s Program in Renewable Energy Management at the University of Freiburg. Greenmotions Film Festival is now organized by a mix of film makers, artists and volunteers who founded the nonprofit association Greenmotions e.V. (articles). The name Greenmotions is registered as trademark at the German Patent and Trade Mark Office.

Our vision is:

A healthy world with vital people who feel interconnectedness among all living beings and take responsibility for their thoughts and actions.

Our mission and strategy is:

  • Inspiring people to rethink their own behavior towards themselves, towards others and towards the world by showing eye-opening and solution-oriented movies.
  • Encouraging people to live the transformation, by initiating discussions and exchange among the audience and offering possibilities to get active with local initiatives.
