INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
ECOCINEMA 2003

  REGULATIONS
ECO-CINEMA, is an International Film Festival devoted to environmental cinema, which was first organized in September 2001 on the island of Zakynthos, seat of the first National Marine Park in Greece.

The festival included many awarded international entries and has been highly acclaimed by both the press and the public.

One of the Festival's immediate aims is creating a web of professionals that are associated in film production regarding the festival's context, so that operation of a commercial department is possible in the near future. 

Last year's experience has proved that this is possible as well as necessary, since some film sales were conducted by the film's representatives from various countries that took part in the festival.

ECOCINEMA invites documentaries, shorts and features with environmental and ecology themes, encouraging conservation issues and issued related with the natural, the human and the built environment in which we live. Prizes are awarded to the films for their innovative approach in conservation issues for their daring proposal in subject matter and their artistic qualities overall.

We believe that as this festival enters its third year, it can become a yearly cultural event with multiple receivers: the general public, cinematographers, the environmental community, scientists, media, distributors.
This year's Festival will consist of the following parts:
  INTERNATIONAL COPMPETITION SECTION 
Competition section, screening films from all over the world, a number of them for the first time, with the participation of their directors.
The International jury awards prizes for both the international and national competition categories.
