Panel Discussion

Environment: Theme and Approach Evolution in the last 20 years

OiFuturo Ipanema - September, 9th, 6:30PM  |  Free Entry - Open for Everybody


On the occasion of the tribute to the twentieth  edition of the Portuguese Cine'Eco festival, a round table to discuss and understand the evolution of environment-related issues. What has changed in twenty years? What is no longer a concern - if any issue in this area has found a solution or a good referral - and what began to be evaluated, has been revealed or denounced. How the approach to environmental issues - when it comes to formats, techniques and genres of films and videos - evolved or was altered along the years?

To discuss these issues we gather people working on environment and sustainability for over twenty years, either by making reports, organizing events, producing and directing films and videos, as director of Cine'Eco, Mario Branquinho and director and producer Paula Saldanha, or studying the economic and social consequences of climate change as professor, consultant and economist Sergio Besserman.

To mediate the table, we invited the journalist Agostinho Vieira.
