One Planet

Recent months have been dominated by a global struggle against an invisible enemy. The organisers of the 3rd Kraków Green Film Festival (16-23 August) tirelessly remind us that the global coronavirus pandemic hasn’t halted melting glaciers, miraculously eliminated pollution from the atmosphere or brought rain to drought-stricken Poland. Despite the lockdown, humankind’s impact on the environment hasn’t changed significantly – we’ll be reminded of this with almost 70 films presented during a week-long outdoor festival at the Czerwieński Boulevard and screenings in selected parks throughout Kraków.

This year’s programme touches on subjects including the Anthropocene, smart cities, sustainable consumption, climate vs. human rights, endangered species, agriculture and environmental disasters. The festival presents feature-length and short films, most of which will be screened in Poland for the first time. We will also see films awarded at some of the most important festivals, such as the Oscar-nominated winner of the main documentary prize at Sundance Honeyland – a moving story about a Macedonian woman living in an abandoned village where she tends to her bedridden mother and supports them both by collecting and selling honey. There will also be ambitious and widely discussed productions, such as Anthropocene: The Human Epoch narrated by Alicia Vikander, Sea of Shadows, Genesis 2.0 and Erin Brockovich with Julia Roberts in the starring role.

Viewers who won’t be able to join us at the outdoor cinema by the Vistula can still enjoy the films by watching them streamed free online.

There is no Planet B, so it’s all the more reason to take care of our own. If you don’t believe us… take a look at the Kraków Green Film Festival!
