ECOCUP International Green Documentary Film Festival. 

Since 2010 ECOCUP has been bringingto make this world a better place. 

Since 2012 ECOCUP is the only Russian member of Green Film Network, the international group that unites environmental film festivals around the world. 

Festival started as a voluntary project with the journalistic principle in mind: “The problem cannot be solved if no-one talks about it”. Documentary films are one of the best alternative source of information and the reason to start a conversation. After every screening the moderate discussion takes place with local and international experts. In the frame of the festivals there are meetings, panels, round tables on environment and sustainability, as well as the professional workshops on documentary filmmaking. 

Russian filmmakers, journalists, photo watch this film!”. 

Environmental film festivals cannot change the world. People change the world. But environmental films can change people. 

That’s why our Moto is “Films that change the future”.
