New Earth International Film Festival

Festival Mission

LOOK
You can experience the disastrous effects of climate change first-hand today. You can even feel air pollution, destruction of nature and ecological imbalance in the city. Look around and see what is happening around you.

THINK
Can you have an impact on the future and the quality of the environment? Does air quality depend on you? How about waste management, energy consumption or focusing on renewable energy sources? Just think.

REACT
What you can definitely do is make sure that as many people as possible are aware of the risks. Reach out to those who have not yet realized the consequences of ignoring environmental issues. Grab a phone, a camera, use an interesting idea to create an animation, a documentary, a short story to show that everything we do now has an impact on what air we breathe and what kind of environment we live in.

Make your planet perfect again!

One of our ongoing projects is the 1st Polish edition of an environmental film festival held in Krakow as: New Earth International Film Festival. We want to open the door for the audience to gain an awareness of contemporary threats to the natural environment. During the Festival, we will be showing short films created by Polish artists, divided into four categories:

The organizers of the Festival will also accept projects from around the world, which will be presented in a separate category: International Films.. The Festival audience will nominate films for special awards. From among the nominated productions, the festival jury will select the best ones and award prizes in categories for best music, best pictures and best director. We plan to organize 5 days of themed conferences and short film screenings to attract not only young people but also entire families. We have also planned a surprise for the viewers. As the Festival draws to its close, a special prize will be funded for the selected filmmaker, which will be awarded at the Closing Ceremony.
