F.I.F.E.S. honors international films in order to highlight environmental and societal initiatives.
The international competition will be composed of medium and feature films with documentaries, fictions and animations. The ambition of the selected films is to address the enormous issues and challenges of our time in a systemic approach: water, agriculture, society, energy, health, education, technology, economy, politics, “buen vivir” or “Sumak Kawsay” in Quechua, the good life, etc.
The members of the jury are carefully chosen to represent the ecological and/or social commitment and the world of cinema. Gender parity is respected. We also make sure that from one edition to the next we alternate between a president and a president of the jury.
Thus, this year, Emmanuel Cappellin succeeds Sophie Rabhi-Bouquet as president of the jury of the international competition.
