About the festival: 

The E?! – Environmental film festival was born in 2014 as an idea in Zelena akcija to introduce the environmental issues we deal with to new, broader, audiences through the medium of documentary films. Film, as a medium, effectively engages the stories which happen “in the field”, and the people whose lives are intertwined with these stories, which allows for a deeper understanding of the issues that affect people around the world, including us. Ranging from health issues faced by the inhabitants of a small village in Columbia, which is located near the largest open coal pit in the world, to organized activists fighting to keep their city intact somewhere in Europe, and all the way to large protest against corporate polluters and the governments which give them free reign, all of which is connected with us and our way of life. 

The films we show on E?! Fest attempt to raise awareness about what it is in our behavior that harms the environment, and the people around us, what connects us to broader issues in a system that encourages such behavior (the social and economic system, power relations, etc.), and encourages us to become active, organize and mobilize for resistance to such ways of life, and fight for a better world. We show films that inform, but also inspire, precisely to motivate you to think, connect, change, act... 

*This event is organized as part of the School of Sustainability project and through support by the Centers of Knowledge program of the National Foundation for Civil Society Development.
