The 3rd Festival Internacional de Cine Ambiental (FINCA) will be held in Buenos Aires (Argentina) from June 1st up to the 8th, 2016.
The objective of the FINCA is to present the best films addressing the social issues related to the defense of the environment from original and multiple perspectives, thus promoting a critical form of cinema which will contribute to social transformation. The special social and transformative focus of FINCA, is postulated from then as a democratization tool in the environmental debate to other spaces.
The variety of formats and genres, from short films to feature-length, documentaries to fiction, animations to reports, works from Argentina and from other countries, reflects the intention of the FINCA to overcome the prejudice currently evident in the environmental debate, which seems to be open only to industry professionals.
From this point of view the FINCA will be a proactive space for discussion on environmental issues, placing this as a central issue in political agendas as well as within people´s homes and educational establishments. It is our responsibility as citizens living of this earth to adopt sustainable practices and to recognize of the importance of preserving biodiversity.
