With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, climate disasters and other pressing global issues all happening this year, there is a need to accelerate solutions for a more sustainable and regenerative future. And that’s exactly what the Singapore Eco Film Festival 2020 aims to address with its fifth edition, happening from now till Nov 22.
Taking place virtually via sgeff.com, a total of 10 movies will be showcased to spotlight the importance of conservation of our planet Earth. This year’s theme is Re(generation), which is a look at how Earth’s inhabitants can collectively work together to create a regenerative culture in our social and natural systems.
Look forward to an exciting line-up of films, including festival headliner Kiss the Ground. A recently-launched, acclaimed Netflix feature, the flick highlights the importance of regenerating the world’s soils so lost ecosystems may be restored and Earth’s climate can be stabilised.
Then check out Riverblue, which documents international conservationist Mark Angelo’s mission to infiltrate one of the world’s most pollutive industries—fashion; Fair Traders that spotlights inspiring and determined entrepreneurs who operate ethically to reconcile profit and morals; as well as Cao-Vit Gibbon’s Ark, which showcases the riveting, survival story of the mysterious ape.
But apart from the films, the SGEFF has also announced LA-based Singaporean actress and eco advocate Elizabeth Lazan as their first Eco Ambassador, assisting in the programme curation and hosting the opening night. Bringing her philosophy of eco mindfulness, Lazan will moderate the Sustainable Fashion and Climate Anxiety panels happening between Nov 20-22.
Festival-goers will also be able to check out storytelling sessions, Q&A dialogues and even panel discussions with filmmakers online, via sgeff.com.
