SunChild International Environmental Festival

International environmental film festival.


SunChild International Environmental Festival, established by Foundation for the Preservation of Wildlife and Cultural Asset (FPWC), is the 1st and so far the only environmental festival holding on in the South Caucasus region. More than 400 films from 150 countries around the world were screened over the last 9 years of existence. Film fest includes wide range of activities such as carnival marches, dozens of workshops, conferences and exhibitions. All events are eye catching due to their colorful and unique approaches. The festival ''travels’’ in the regions of Armenia throughout the whole year, involving a large number of children and youth, facilitating identification and creative solutions of community environmental issues by organizing thematic film screenings, discussions and other initiatives, encouraging and supporting to take action locally. 
The aim of the festival is to bring nature, wildlife and environment into the focus of public attention and increase the knowledge about issues among citizens and especially among children and youth.
