Global Eco Film Festival

The Swiss international showcase of films with focus on science (all disciplines), environment and/or nature

Scientists (all disciplines), , environmentalists and naturalists study and protect the world in which we live, whereas filmmakers interpret and divulge this knowledge and expertise to society. There is often a gap, nonetheless, between researchers on the one side and filmmakers on the other side. Ideally,
(i) scientists, environmentalists and naturalists should benefit from the inspirational, educational, and motivational power of films to communicate knowledge and expertise, and to raise awareness about the threats to our planet, and
(ii) filmmakers should be able to accurately interpret scientific and ecological issues with solid background knowledge.

The Global Eco Film Festival (GEFF) aims to advance public understanding of science, environment and nature through the power of film, and it serves as a networking platform for international scientists (all disciplines), environmentalists, naturalists, producers and broadcasting commissioners, with representatives from commerce and politics.

This GEFF presents documentary and fiction films (all lengths).

Together with the annual film festival, year-round events and educational programs will take place.
