The president of this year’s festival is the photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand.


The 2005 Festival opened with the screening of Mongolian Ping Pong.

7 000 spectators came to discover a selection of 52 films, in and out of competition, and to take part in several debates and Q&As.

The next edition of the festival will continue to embrace the great variety of environmental films, through screenings, debates and discussions.


2006 is the year of the “Francophonie” in France and the Festival will celebrate it by inviting the Fespaco Festival, a festival that has worked for many years to present films from the Francophone community.


To facilitate a rich program of films, we are looking for documentaries, feature films and short films to participate in the festival.


We encourage you to submit your films for the next edition and we look forward to working with you in the near future.


I’m at your disposal for any further information.
