Cartel Cinema Planeta Impresion Final CHNumber of assistants: 75, 000

The main energetic resource in the world, in which many countries base their economy, is Oil. Non the less this material, besides being extremely pollutant, is non renewable. This is why Cinema Planeta, Enviromental Film Festival o Mexico dedicated it´s seventh edition a topic of great importance: Energy. The topic was explored through different perspectives in the Focus section where films about nuclear energy, negative effects of fracking, oils spills, and the war between bikes and cars where shown.

The screening for the festival’s opening was the new Disneynature’s worldwide premiere film, Monkey Kingdom. For the Official Selection Competition we presented 9 international documentaries; the Mexican section Tierra (Earth) is composed by 6 national films; for the Mundos (Worlds) section we presented four films from the French filmmaker, Nicolás Vanier; the program for Eco (Echoes) section was selected by the International Environmental Festival, Cine’Eco da Serra da Estrela de Seia, Portugal.

The Palomitas (Popcorn) section for children and young audiences showed 4 long films and 21 short films. The special screenings for this year were: Tracks by Director John Curran with the brilliant performance of Mia Wasikowska; Unplugged by Mladen Kovacevic, which transport us to the folk musicians world in Serbia, and the release in Mexico of Black Ice, a new production by Geenpeace. Likewise, for the closing, we showed the film How to Change the World by Jerry Rothwell, where in 1971 a group of activists sail to the atomic test bomb zone and their protest actions capture the world’s imagination. The use of unpublished material gives life to their extraordinary world, composed by the early Greenpeace pioneers, which defined the modern ecological movement.

Movie projections were not the only activities, our traditional cycling ride took place, including the most important cycling groups from Cuernavaca, which ended with the bicicinema (bike-cinema) screening of Bikes vs. Cars by Fredrik Gertten. We also presented the show, Un lugar común (A Common Place) by Waldo Facco and Kristos Lezama, and Extraño enemigo (Strange Enemy) proto-visual experiment by Bruno Varela.
Cinema’s Planeta academic activities included three Work in Progress show and tell talks. We continued to hold the Environmental Halls, where 20 thousand students attended the movie theaters, all this with the support of the Universidad Autonoma del Estado de Morelos (Morelos State University), the IEBEM and Academia de Ciencias de Morelos (Morelos Science Academy) offering chats and debates at the end of the screenings. Since 2009 to date, we have taken more than 60 thousand students to the movie theaters, offering tools in order to transform these youngsters into driving forces for change.

We continue to strengthen our alliance with institutions that make the festival possible, like Universidad Autonoma del Estado de Morelos (Morelos State University), Morelos state Government, the Red Mexicana de Festivales Cinematográficos (Mexican Film Festival network), SEMARNAT (National Environmental and Natural Resources Ministry), Cinemex (Movie complex), among many others.

Cinema Planeta projected around 80 cinematographic titles from the 5 continents generating thought and discussion in order to help form more conscientious citizens aware about the environmental situation in México and around the world.
