The Festival 2020

The International Wildlife Film Festival GREEN SCREEN draws a positive balance for this special year, which has been marked by the limitations of the Corona pandemic. 5,500 nature-loving film lovers visited the festival 2020. Europe's largest festival for nature documentaries presented 98 environmental and nature films from current, worldwide production in the festival city of Eckernförde and the surrounding cities of Kiel, Schleswig and Rendsburg in a total of 120 events spread over six weeks. The hygiene regulations of the state of Schleswig-Holstein required a concept in advance with significantly lower attendance figures at the attendance events. In addition, Green Screen recorded more than 10,000 hits on films placed online as well as on the online seminars for film industry experts and the awards ceremony. "We are pleased about the continued great interest in nature films and the Green Screen Festival and would like to thank all visitors for their understanding of the restrictions this year," explained Ulrike Lafrenz on behalf of the festival board.
