The 12th Festival du Film Vert: more than 200 screenings will take place in 44 different cities throughout French-speaking Switzerland, in France and in the Zurich region, during the months of March and April 2017.
This will again be an opportunity for an ever-increasing number of audiences, to attend numerous screenings of documentaries on ecology and sustainable development, in a friendly atmosphere.
The 8th Tournesol Prize will be awarded by an international jury composed of film professionals and personalities from France and Switzerland. This jury will have to choose among the 5 films nominated by the selection committee of the Festival.
As every year, the Festival has selected a main film, which will be screened virtually everywhere: “Everything is accelerating“, by Gilles Vernet (France, 2016). The film invites the spectator to a reflection on the dominant Western way of life: consumption, stress, speed, growth …
About forty other films dealing with various topics around sustainable development in the broadest sense of the term will be presented.
