From 9th to 13th November, the 8th edition of the Greenmotions Film Festival took place at the municipal cinema at the Alter Wiehrebahnhof in Freiburg this year. We showed inspiring films covering different topics around sustainability, often accompanied by live discussions or video interviews with filmmakers, offered an exciting workshop and a delicious food-saving buffet. All in all, we were able to welcome 559 visitors over five days.
We would like to thank all helpers, cooperation partners, sponsors and everyone who contributes every year to make this wonderful festival possible!
With the 8th Greenmotions Film Festival we placed special emphasis on the topic “Women – Environment – Activism”. All other feature films that didn’t belong to the special topic took part in our “Audience Favourite” competition.
The festival was opened on Wednesday, November 9th, with the films “Montagne di Plastica” by Manuel Camia and “La quête du silence” by Julien Guéraud. The latter covers the topic noise pollution by following the sound engineer Boris Jollivet on his quest for the very rare places of true silence in France.
