CinemAmbiente 2015 | Introduction
CinemAmbiente 2015 is special in several ways. The festival date has been moved from June to October to coincide with Feeding the Cities, a project promoted by the City of Turin in conjunction with the events held during the World Forum for Local Economic Development. Since CinemAmbiente is also included in the ExpoTo 2015 calendar, this year’s Festival has an added food dimension in keeping with the main theme of Expo 2015. What will we be eating in 2050 when we’ll be sharing the table with 10 billion hungry people? The Festival’s opening night film, 10 Billion: What’s on Your Plate? by German filmmaker Valentin Thurn, seeks to answer that question.

CinemAmbiente 2013: a great success!
The 16th CinemAmbiente Film Festival was extraordinarily rich in contents: 60 international guests, 80 films, a great deal of attention from the national media. Despite the crisis for cultural events, who have questioned the existence of the Festival itself, CinemAmbiente was once again a great success.
Huge crowds attended the screenings; free initiatives, including Ecotalk, Ecokids and the free lunch for 1800 people organized for the worldwide campaign against food waste were successful above all expectations, confirming the growing interest in the environmental issues.
'We believe that the prestige of CinemAmbiente is growing for several reasons: production and distribution Companies choose it as a "springboard". Environmental associations and citizens consider the Festival as a confrontation area with a tolerant attitude and the ability of listen and share different ideas. The visit of the Minister of the Environment Andrea Orlando represented a great support to us in a particularly difficult time" says Gaetano Capizzi, director of CinemAmbiente.
And now you are all welcome to join and follow the next activities and projects of CinemAmbiente on our website and through our social networks: CinemAmbiente TV and CinemAmbiente Tour!
