Our film competition starts its next round for the jubilee year 2020. Freiburg turns 900 years young and we want to celebrate its birthday with a 9-day film festival in November. We are looking forward to many submissions on sustainability and beyond. In addition, we want to offer our audience a special selection on this years’ special topic “Our Water”. We are curious to watch your inspiring, positive, moving or funny works.
At the festival we will show short films (up to 20 minutes) from our international short film competition and selected feature films (20-120 minutes). Additionally, we will once again host our popular bicycle cinema in Freiburg schools, where students will provide the required electricity for the projector and speakers by pedalling bicycles.
Greenmotions wants to open eyes and raise awareness, but also move and inspire to action! We present solution-oriented, constructive and positive films, with reference to sustainability and the environment around the globe. Sustainability covers a wide range of topics. For example, films on recycling, sustainable agriculture, energy transition, climate change as a reason to flight, eco-feminism, mobility, consumption, health, biodiversity, tourism, activism, post-growth, mindfulness or climate change can be submitted.
