ale kino plakatThe 40th anniversary edition of Ale Kino! Festival will be held between October 1 and 7 in Poznań and between November 30 and December 4 on the platform www.alekino.com. Together with the creators of the Festival we will plant 40 trees in Poznan!

Ale Kino! is one of the most important and largest film festivals for children, and young people in Europe.

Ale Kino! is a unique intercultural, intergenerational space for exchanging ideas, experiences, a meeting place for filmmakers, film producers, children’s festival organizers, educators and people interested in film for children and young people.

During the 40th edition of Ale Kino! you will have the opportunity to move to a unique, multidimensional world of film productions, treating important, topical and timeless themes, such as: friendship, contemporary/superhero/woman, body positive, girl power, survival, death.

Among the carefully selected titles you will find numerous premieres including Polish and world premieres, such as “Erik Stone Heart” directed by Ilmar Raag, who will be a guest of the festival, “Unicorn Wars” directed by Alberto Vazquez, creator of “Psychonauts. The Forgotten Children”, “My Robot Brother” directed by Frederik Nørgaard, “My Small Land” by Emma Kawawada, winner of the Amnesty International Award at the Berlinale, and many other great titles.

The event’s organizers have been trying to take a responsible approach to organizing the festival for several years. They are successively reducing harmful activities and analyzing them for their impact on the environment.
This year they decided to accelerate the transition to Green Events.

 

What environmental activities have they undertaken this year:

  • They planted, together with us, 40 trees for the 40th edition of Ale Kino! Our Foundation is offsetting carbon emissions with tree plantings through the TIME FOR FOREST program and is the originator of the Green Events.
  • Instead of producing additional goodies, they invited viewers to create a festival mascot with them. They held a live workshop in September, and published a die-cut and tutorial on their website on how to sew your own cuddly toy. During the festival, they invited people to take a tour of cinematic Poznań. And they will produce pencil cases from the banner that hangs on CK Zamek, which will be the gadget for theonline edition this December.
  • They are working with local manufacturers, businesses and responsible initiatives, thus reducing supply chains.
  • They have done away with some of the printing or reduced the volume.
  • They produced recycled PET lanyards with the Ale Kino! logo, which should serve them for years to come.
  • They encourage participants to use public transportation – they have established cooperation with the Wielkopolska Railways and the Public Transport Authority.

And many other small actions and changes, and this is just the beginning.
