“EcoCup” is the only festival in Russia, which familiarizes Russian viewers with aforeign ecological film. The uniqueness of EcoCup is in the synthesis of creative approaches to the concept of “ecology of life”. Environmental protection is a conscious choice, an action that brings results. The film festival doesn’t just state facts, but shows the problems, it provides with an opportunity to speak out, make plans, plan events and, of course, make movies.All the films at the festival will be shown in Russia for the first time. These films have participated in international festivals, they won the prizes and were shown in cinema houses around the world.

Even talking on such a serious subject as the environment we can make interesting. The directors of our ecological films do not just talk about tragedies. Each of them offers a specific solution. Each of them believes that even one person can change the world for the better. The future depends on you!

The film gives you a chance to see the solution. Good ideas spread at the speed of sound. One film show becomes a repeatedly falling drop or … a vital EcoCup.
