  • From 7 September to 18 October, Green Screen is showing a large number of outstanding wildlife films on the Internet and at selected events. This year, Europe's most popular nature film festival is setting an example with its programme for nature documentaries and its presentation for nature-loving film fans.
  • The programme for all events will be published online on 1 August. At the same time, ticket sales via the Green Screen website will begin. At around 130 individual events, the festival once again offers a cross-section of the worldwide production of nature films.
  • For filmmakers, special platforms for the exchange and presentation of their films will be established. All green screen prizes will be awarded this year as well. Festival director Dirk Steffens will moderate the award ceremony for filmmakers from numerous countries. The award is presented online.
  • The festival is extended to six weeks. About 70 nature documentaries and numerous short films are shown in Eckernförde. Green Screen takes into account the currently necessary conditions for public events at two venues.
  • In addition, a current nature film will be presented on the green screen website under the title "One Day - One Film" on each of the 14 festival days in Eckernförde. From 21 September, cinemas in neighbouring cities will show four weeks of festival films. Screenings are planned in Kiel, Rendsburg and Schleswig.
  • Green Screen is preparing online seminars for experts this year. This includes the presentation of new trends in nature films and the "pitching", which has been successful for years, in which filmmakers present their ideas for new productions to a panel of experts.
