Green Screen


Years running: 16 (since 2007)

Green Screen

International Wildlife Film Festival.


In 2012, about 13 600 visitors saw nearly one hundred spectacular nature related films and met with important representatives from commerce and politics as well as numerous international filmmakers, producers and many braodcasting commissioners. GREEN SCREEN has established itself as an international meeting place for natural history filmmakers and offers a unique symbiosis to both professionals and public viewers: In a familiar and casual atmosphere, moviegoers can ask questions, give feedback and make suggestions to attending filmmakers. On the other hand, the filmmakers receive more than just audience ratings: here, they are able to experience the viewer's reactions to their productions first hand.
