We organize this festival in order to create a new reason to produce and introduce films and any other works of art that concentrate on the world’s problems and wealth, pioneer the creation of a free platform and reward these works. We live in an era where too much information or even input that we cannot consider as information rapidly flow in various areas. We organize this festival so that we could all seek what is more local and smaller, and more importantly the one that is true and genuine together.
The world has been changing continuously, and we witness both growing problems and hopeful developments. We organize this festival in order to create a platform that nurtures the hope. We hope that through our festival the residents of Bozcaada, farmers, producers, scientists, artists and all our guests will be informed about the current technological developments, disasters and innovations, the most recent documentary techniques and also each other platform that will enable the youth, the farmers, and the producers of the island and the surrounding area to be informed about the latest technological developments.
2015 will see the second edition of BIFED – Bozcaada International Festival of Ecological Documentary hosted and organized by Bozcaada Municipality and Boztid (Bozcaada Tourism Operators Association). After last year’s wonderful films in the competition and the other sections we are excited to see more great films concerned about the world, its past-present and future. The festival will take place from October 22-25, 2015 on the beautiful Aegean island of Bozcaada (Tenedos).
