The fifth edition of Filmambiente happens in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) from August 27​th ​to September 3rd​, 2015 ​at Espaço ​Itau ​de Cinema, the Environment Museum​, OiFuturo Ipanema, and the eight Naves ​do Conhecimento ​scattered around the north ​zone ​and the ​periphery​ of the city​  (Madureira, Penha, Padre Miguel, Irajá, Vila Aliança (Bangu), Santa Cruz and Nova Brasilia (Complexo do Alemão).

And this year, for the first time, and always aiming to ​increase awareness and extend ​exhibitions, special sessions for schools will be held in the morning and afternoon at the Museum of the Environment.

​The festival will present 69 films, selected from the best and most awarded ​films on ​environmental issue​s​and, as every year, all ​the screenings are free ​of charge ​and ​subtitled, in order to enable wider access to information that will assist​ audiences​in making decisions and choices that lead to ​a ​fairer and more balanced​ ​sustainable development.

In addition to​ the Short and Feature Competition, there’s a showcase of French films – selected with the support of FIFE – Carte Blanche FIFE, International Festival of Environmental Films – held for over 30 years, annually in Paris, France, and one of the most important festivals in the world ​on this theme. The other shows are How ​is Your Health​ Doing?Life is WaterNature and Panorama. And a special program of films that do not require subtitles, will be prepared for the Naves and exhibitions in schools.
