Eco Film Festival Pretoria 2015

The 2015 South African Eco Film Festival brings the best local and international eco documentaries to South African audiences. In Pretoria, the festival will run from 26 March to 2 April 2015 at the Asbos Theatre.

Documentary films are an excellent way of learning about environmental issues, but tend to be marginalised from the mainstream cinema circuit. The Eco Film Festival redressed this issue with a world-class programme of beautifully shot and engaging short and feature-length films exploring a wide range of environmental topics.

The programme includes more than 25 documentaries, 12 of which have never been seen in South Africa before. Questions that this year's films seek to ask and try answer include: how can parents get their kids away from electronic screens and into nature? What are the thousands of industrial chemicals we are constantly surrounded by doing to our bodies? Will sharks survive humanity’s seemingly insatiable hunger for shark fin soup?

Members of the audience will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite film, which will be decorated with the Silver Tree Audience Choice Award.

In an exciting development, MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet, one of South Africa’s biggest community fundraising programmes, has come on board as the festival’s headline sponsor.  The South African Eco Film Festival is a project of While You Were Sleeping, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing documentary films that both entertain and inform with important environmental, social and political messages to South African audiences.
