Countdown to the Festival 2020
Green Screen Festival
Since 2007, the idyllic town of Eckernförde on the Baltic coast hosts the International Wildlife Film Festival GREEN SCREEN each year in September. Meanwhile, it has grown to become the largest annual wildlife film festival in Europe. In 2019, 22 330 visitors saw nearly one hundred spectacular nature related films and met with important representatives from commerce and politics as well as numerous international filmmakers, producers and many braodcasting commissioners. GREEN SCREEN has established itself as an international meeting place for natural history filmmakers and offers a unique symbiosis to both professionals and public viewers: In a familiar and casual atmosphere, moviegoers can ask questions, give feedback and make suggestions to attending filmmakers. On the other hand, the filmmakers receive more than just audience ratings: here, they are able to experience the viewer's reactions to their productions first hand.
