Barents Ecology Film Festival


Years running: 13 (since 2012)

Barents Ecology Film Festival

Ecology Film Festival.


Barents Ecology Film Festival unites film directors, who make films about the environment, and offer positive problem solutions. We want to show the people that it can be interesting to talk about ecological issues and we can do it with the help of films.

Films from Russia, Norway, Sweden, Finland and other countries are shown on the Festival and are included in the competition programme. BEFF doesn’t only show the newest ecological films, but also offers you a wide variety of other activities: exhibitions, workshops, art projects, contests of different kind and much more.

BEFF is the place for creative people: you can participate in workshops on filmmaking, ecofashion, EcoArt, photography and others. BEFF offers you discussions, lectures and seminars devoted to the environmental issues as well as the opportunity of networking among the ecologists, film directors and the residents of the Barents Region.
