Years running: 28 (since 1994)


The International Environmental Film Festival.


The aim of the Festival is to promote and publicise audiovisual productions on environmental issues during the week of the Festival and all year long. Being the oldest Environmental Film Festival in the world and with a compromise towards current environmental issues, FICMA has started to gradually reduce CO2 emissions since its 15th edition. As part of this compromise, “THE FICMA FOREST" was born. On the banks of the LLobregat River and in shared joint management with the town of El Prat de Llobregat, the forest supports itself from the reduction of plane ticket expenses of our guests, leaving these to the criteria of the latter, and making FICMA only responsible for their train expenses within Spain.

Accordingly, FICMA has reduced the printing of the festival catalogue by 100% and that of the printed schedules and posters by 70%. Our website is now the main point of access to all content and downloadable information. In order to promote the responsible use of the new online technologies and mobile telephony, FICMA has created an online application called FESTIVAL ONLINE.
