Hot ideas for a cooler planet

The Greenmotions Film Festival is a call to action aiming to raise awareness in people around sustainable thinking! The third edition took place at Kommunales Kino im Alten Wiehre Bahnhof in Freiburg (Germany) on November 11 – 13, 2016. This year more than 1100 visitors attended the projections, debates and workshops. Sustainability and the environment were the main themes of the festival. With the presentation of solution-oriented, constructive and positive films we would like to convince the audience of the need for active participation. Beyond that we showed movies about climate refugees who had to migrate due to destruction of the environment in their home countries.

Inspiring documentaries and feature movies were presented at the festival weekend along with the best short films of our international short film competition. A bicycle-cinema was organised in schools; students run the projector for the films by paddling their bikes.

If you missed this edition don’t worry, we are already working on the next one! In the mean time check out the brochure of the Greenmotion Film Festival 2016 so that you can have a taste of what were the inspiring movies of this year.

A special thanks to all the volunteers that have contributed to the realisation of this event. The team warmly thanks all of you for your time, availability kindness and reliability.
