“In terms of content, there is no focus,” festival spokesperson Michael Van Burke said Friday when introducing the program. But environmental issues have appeared in almost every film. 221 nature films were submitted from 57 countries – including Oman, Uganda, Tanzania, New Zealand and Sri Lanka. The 100 best nature films from around the world have now been selected.
Also many films from Schleswig-Holstein there
Under the theme “Films and Nature Tours”, Schleswig-Holstein’s natural treasures will also be explored and nature films will be shown at the festival. Wild horses at Geltinger Birk, an evening at the Offenbütteler Moor in Dithmarschen, a beginner’s dive in the Baltic Sea off Eckernförde and a night with bats in Bad Segeberg.
The festival runs from 4 to 12 September. The Trade Visitor Program is focused on September 8-12. Also this year, the media partner is NDR.
On-site film makers
Some of the films will be shown in 16 cinemas in Schleswig-Holstein and Denmark after the festival week – from 13 to 19 September. In contrast to 2020, exchange with filmmakers is again possible this year: many of them have already been registered. The full program is now available online, and tickets can also be booked.
