simultaneously in 20 cities and towns!

From all over the world, inspirational stories of people who are striving to create a better future will be brought to audience from November, 19 to November, 22!

Sustainable Living Film Festival emerged from the dream of a sharing, open, fair and empathetic society that embraces diversity and cares about the planet and life on it. In its eighth year, the festival will be held from the 19th-22nd of November in İstanbul and from the 20th-22nd of November in other cities. The documentaries in the collection remind the audience that they can step forward to be a part of the solution instead of being part of the problem and feeling desperate about it.

The Sustainable Living Film Festival will be held simultaneously in 20 different cities and towns, thanks to the efforts of local teams who responded to the Sustainable Living Collective’s call for collaboration with the motto, “You can do it, too!” Here are the cities and towns where the festival will be held:

Adana, Ankara, Antalya, Artvin, Balıkesir, Bayındır, Bodrum, Bursa, Çanakkale, Diyarbakır, Eskişehir, Fethiye, Giresun, İstanbul, İzmir, Kayseri, Konya, Mersin, Trabzon and Urla.

Holistic, Solution-Oriented and Heart-Warming Films

The Sustainable Living Film Festival 2015 offers a program that invites audience to act. With the 30 films in

this year’s collection, the festival shows that our current problems with water, climate, energy, agriculture,  transportation, fashion and many other problems are actually symptoms. These films make it easier to comprehend the core of these problems and their interconnections.

After the documentaries, there will be presentations and discussions related to the topics. Also, bands and performance groups will join us to enrich the festival program.

The Sustainable Living Collective is aware that sustainable living is only possible with diversity. So the aim of the festival is to bring farmers, business people, corporate workers, students, teachers and concerned parents, academics and activists together to watch the documentaries.

About the Sustainable Living Film Festival:

The Sustainable Living Film Festival is held for a better understanding of the concept of sustainability, for a better perception of systemic problems interacting with each other, and for sharing inspirational solutions to these problems.

The festival is organized by the Sustainable Living Collective, which was born from a mission to collectively actualize projects “creating a butterfly effect” by individuals who got together within an open and flexible structure that values diversity. The collective, which solely is a civil movement, continues its work related to increasing awareness about sustainable living with the support and participation of individuals and organizations who share the vision of Sustainable Living Collective.
