The  International Environmental Film Festival (FINCA), organized by the DerHumALC Multimedia Institute (IMD), is a cultural and social project —an invitation to discover how film and audiovisual narratives can boost awareness and commitment to environmental issues in order to promote a fairer and more egalitarian future. The selection stems from an international open call and is made up of fiction and documentary shorts, medium-length and feature films that harness innovative and diverse narratives and languages. Set in territories that narrate the life stories and struggles of their inhabitants, including emblematic pollution cases, the films offer different viewpoints aimed at creating awareness about the importance of advocating for nature as a common good subject to rights.

This edition’s program revolves around 11 thematic sections: Climate Justice, Ecofeminism, Econsciousness and Sustainability, Schools, Energy Horizons, Youth, Mother Earth, Food Sovereignty, We Are Water, FINCA for Kids, FICDH-Human Rights, and two special sections: A focus on Palestine and the Ecozine Window, with a selection of films from Spain’s Ecozine Festival. Directors and leading figures within the different areas will be present after the screenings to promote exchange and collective reflection.

In addition, there are three official competitions: the International Feature Films, International Short and Medium-Length Films, and Latin American Documentaries competitions. RAFMA and Signis will be presenting an award each and one of the participating films will take home the audience award as well. 

As in every edition, the agenda includes special screenings for primary and secondary schools of short films made by and for teenagers. These will be screened at the Museum and Site of Memory (former Higher School of Mechanics of the Navy —ESMA—). Children can enjoy a selection of shorts to enjoy with their families: FINCA for Kids.

Alongside the Goethe-Institut Buenos Aires and the Centro Cultural de España en Buenos Aires (CCEBA-AECID), the FINCA will be hosting a free-of-charge, in-person workshop on Sustainable Filmmaking on June 14. With specialists Birgit Heidsiek (Germany), Paloma Andrés Urrutia (Spain), Florencia Nates (Argentina) and leading figures within the streaming industry, the event seeks to showcase an array of experiences and offer a toolkit to manage environmental impact and sustainability in the film industry.

On Saturday, June 15, there will be a community assembly coordinated by Enrique Viale with environmental leaders and activists who will share different points of view and experiences around climate justice, energy transition, access to water and food sovereignty, among other issues. 

About the FINCA-IMD

The Festival is organized by the DerHumALC (Human Rights in Latin America and the Caribbean) Multimedia Institute (IMD), an non-profit founded in 1999 with the aim of promoting human rights from an integral perspective through the audiovisual arts. 

In addition to the FINCA, the IMD also organizes the biennial International Human Rights Film Festival (FICDH), the first film festival dedicated to the subject in Latin America, which has celebrated 20 editions already.

About this edition’s focus on #ClimateJustice

In an alarming global context due to the acceleration of the climate crisis and the loss of biodiversity, this edition of the FINCA has Climate Justice as its core theme, seeking to address the causes and consequences of global warming from a socio-environmental perspective. 

From this point of view, the festival proposes to address a fair ecological transition along with economic equity, peoples’ sovereignty and gender equality in a place where artists, activists, and specialists who believe in art as a crucial tool to shift the cultural paradigm and overcome social inequalities can come together and reflect critically.

The FINCA is supported by the Embassies of Canada, Brazil, Belgium and Spain to Argentina; the Centro Cultural de España en Buenos Aires (CCEBA-AECID), Anchoita Films, Lumiton streaming platform (by the Department of Culture of Vicente López) and Buenos Aires City’s sponsorship program, Mecenazgo Cultural.
