First Green Film Festival Comes to Buenos Aires

by Amelia Batho, Contributing Blogger

Right now the environment is a hot topic and a major concern for many of us from all different walks of life. So why not combine your love of film with your concern for all things green and head down to the Green Film Festival taking place from the 12th to the 16th August at Cinemark Alto Palermo (Beruti 3399, Esquina Burnes). The aim of the festival is to showcase the best in current environmental cinema while providing interesting, high quality entertainment.

Tickets are available now from the Cinemark box office and cost $17 for one film or $150 for ten. It proves to be a diverse and thought provoking festival with ten unique, award winning films covering themes from climate change to sustainable development, and directed by a range of international Directors from the United States to Japan. A few notable films are “Food, Inc” and “The Age of Stupid.”

Check out the website for more details on showing times and film information, http://www.greenfilmfest.com.ar/index.html and have a look at this short trailer for a sneak preview of some of the fantastic cinematography on show.

And I’ll be updating you with reviews of films in the next few weeks!

  1. Great to see the environment featuring – we need more of this. There is absolutely no reason why the environmental productions cannot be both informative and entertaining. It just needs the right mix of creativity and environmental knowledge.

    The blog is to be welcomed and I look forward to future entries.
