ECOCUP: special screenings

The International Green Documentary Film Festival ECOCUP presents three special programs of films on ecology and climate in December.

Ecocup is an independent project that presents films about people and their desire to preserve the world around them. This year we were unable to host the festival offline, but decided to select and show the best new "green" cinema online.

The festival in December will be supported by the Heinrich Böll Foundation in Russia and with the support of the US Embassy. Screenings will take place from December 15 to 22 at the online cinema coolconnections.ru. Films are available for viewing at any time during the festival.

Information about Q&A can be found under the film link or on the Festival website ecocup.ru

THE FILMS ARE AVAILABLE FOR WATCHING ONLY IN THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION
