The International Environmental Film Festival from Mexico, Cinema Planeta celebrated its fifth anniversary last April, within this edition, the festival looked into the mobility issue, from different perspectives, such as: geographical, social, migratory, technological, environmental and social awareness. This phenomenon related to human beings, which nowadays is of crucial importance for our development, was presented through more than 65 national and international film titles, as well as 20 short films from 27 countries from 5 continents, divided into 8 different sections.

Japan was our guest of honor during the festival’s 5th edition and we screened five films from that country in our section called Focos.

Films such as where an important part of the showings: Trashed narrated by Jeremy Irons, ¿Para que sirve un oso? (What is a bear good for?), performed by Geraldine Chaplin and Baikonur with music composed by Goran Bregovic.

Also, seven exhibitions took place in different spots from Cuernavaca, e.g. EN DIÁLOGO CON LA MAR (A Conversation with the Sea) curated by Anne-Marie Melster from ARTPORT_making waves. This exhibition gathered the photographical work of Major Jacques Cousteau, as well as, 16 contemporary artists. The exhibition’s goal was to express poetically the interaction between human beings, oceans and underwater life. For this purpose, the exhibition brought together photographs from the Société Cousteau of Paris, including contemporary compositions from international artists with respectful awareness towards the ocean and the environment.

The “Sonda de Exploración Ferroviaria Tripulada SEFT1” (Manned Railway Exploration Probe) a vehicle designed to travel along the country’s 9,000 kilometers of abandoned railway system through the magic glance of Ivan Puig and Andres Domene.

We held four conferences analyzing international and feminine mobility, education in Mexico and Mexican southeast archeological excavations with a very particular perspective of Christiane Burkhard.

We carried out a cycling ride, artistic interventions, an open-air cinema per municipality in the state of Morelos and a month long Cinema Club at the Ancient Railway Station. For a second time in a row, the Cinema Domingo Orchestra, led by Steven Brown, musicalized a silent film, For this edition it was composed of a Lumière brothers program. Our Environmental Halls were crowded with of the presence of 18,500 children and teenagers from Morelos, which also were accompanied by the Science Academy from Morelos with talks at the end of each showing.
Thus, and thanks to the Government’s boost and support, along with the coordination of eight secretaries in the state, we have been able to continue the efforts as we all believe that Cinema Planeta is more than a cinematographic event, and consider the festival as a movement which fosters an environmental conservation culture through the best of global cinema.

Let’s keep building a more participative and critical society!
