Environmental Film Summit on Climate Change Village

Filmmakers and activists expressed their concern for the planet

The Sustainable Development Foundation opened the Summit on Environmental Film at the Benito Juárez Poliforum within the Climate Change Village. This summit will feature documentaries and short films in 4 cities of the Riviera Maya.

For the opening, the documentary The Cove was presented, where the indiscriminate slaughter of dolphins in Taiji, Japan is denounced. This is the work of Ric O'Barry, trainer of the dolphin Flipper, star of the television series of the same name. After his participation in the show, O’Barry has become a strong internationally recognized activist.

The Summit on Environmental Film is a film festival that aims to unite and support efforts of organizations, artists, activists, young people and governments around the world to spread the need to protect the environment.

Its main mission is to promote the use of video and film internationally as a catalyst for public awareness, reasoning and appropriate action for environmental, social and ecological health of the planet.

This is proposed as a forum for reflection, dialogue and the fight for the health of our planet through film language. The festival will feature a selection of materials to promote the analysis and identification of the viewer with environmental issues, as well as great personalities committed to this cause.
