For 11 years, we have been organizing one of the largest environmental film festivals in the German-speaking region. In more than 20 cities in Switzerland, Germany and Liechtenstein we screen the best environmental films of the year. At our festival, 17,000 people come together at more than 150 screenings.
In addition to our festival, we bring the films to a broad audience at our pop-up cinema, through our film library, at digital school events and via our streaming platform.
Our activities reach over 100,000 people a year, either directly at the venues or online in classrooms as well as in their own living rooms.
Please note that fees are non-refundable. A submission does not guarantee entry into the film library or selection for our events.
With your submission, you give us the right to promote your films with clips (shorter than 10s) from the trailers, teasers, artwork and film stills you provide.
Our selection process
Each year, we select the best 15-20 films for our activities such as our festival, pop-up cinema, digital school events, etc. Films for the Earth is a quality label. Our selection is based on high quality criteria in terms of content as well as film technology. Compared to other festivals, we screen fewer films at our festival, which allows us to only show the best ones.
We are looking for moving films that motivate people to take action, that show prospects and initiate change. Furthermore, we appreciate films treating new topics or presenting them from different perspectives.
- Inclusion in our trilingual film library
- Increased visibility to the target audience
- Better findability in the Google index
- Promotion of your film within our events and activities.
