The 19th Festival Internacional de Cine Medioambiental de Canarias will be held in Tenerife from May 27th to June 4th 2017.
“Human lives, transforms and uses the spaces occupied as no other species has done in the planet’s history. The human’s successful adaptation has motivated outrages well known, but also the emergence and progressive development of an acceptance and knowledge. (…) This opens up many and diverse insights which make the ecological theme one of the most exciting and necessary discussions of this new century. In this ideological context becomes interesting a film festival as which Garachico proposes to Canary and world’s citizens.
A festival that takes over what throughout the 80s, in Puerto de la Cruz, was a pioneer in this type of content. Now it wants to be fully integrated into a contemporary look, more difficult and problematic in itself. But certainly it’s useful and provocative.
It is also to do so in Canary Islands and from Canary Islands: an island territory located on the map over current major information routes, trade, tourism, goods transport, flow of people, cultural exchanges…
A territory whose fragility and natural resources become an argument that adds need and even drama when it’s time to thinking coherently and comprehensively in ecology and it actions”.
