International Environmental Film Festival – 20th edition

Films will be shown from the 1st to the 10th of November in the Cines Girona, the Faculty of Biology of the UB, the Institut Francès and the Biblioteca Sagrada Familia

First held in 1992, the Barcelona International Environmental Film Festival (FICMA) returns for its annual cycle with a selection of films which, as usual, are a sample of the best and latest productions dealing with this particular subject matter.

As is customary, the programme for the festival, the oldest in the world in this genre, includes subjects such as ecology, culture, the economy, migratory processes, wars, indiscriminate logging and social questions, among others. Aside from being merely entertaining, the objective of FICMA is also to educate, raise awareness and condemn certain practises and to this effect an informative meeting for the dissemination of environmental material will be held on the 9th of November in the CaixaForum in Barcelona.

This meeting forms part of the overall programme which runs from the 1st to the 10th of November and includes screenings in the Cines Girona, the Faculty of Biology of the University of Barcelona, the Institut Francès and the Biblioteca Sagrada Familia.

Among the numerous sections (short films, full-length films, parallel sections, retrospectives...) we can highlight the Official Section which includes documentaries such as Sand Wars (Denis Delestrac, France), which deals with the indiscriminate trafficking of sand in our contemporary world, God Save the Green (Michele Mellara and Alessandro Rossi, Italy), a documentary about new green areas in urban landscapes and Glacial Balance (Ethan Steinman, USA), a first-hand portrait of the dwindling tropical glacier reserves in the Andes mountain range.
