Ladies and Gentlemen! Friends!
The last months have been a time of struggle for humanity with the invisible enemy – coronavirus, which has changed our daily lives. The COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t stopped glaciers from melting, the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere and many years of drought in Poland.
Bearing in mind that the epidemic and doubts caused by the pandemic, we decided we have to do this year’s festival edition. Climate change continues despite global lock-down, and that’s why the 4rd Krakow Green Film Festival takes place as planned on August 15-24, 2021. We hope that until then our outdoor cinema on the Wisła Boulevards in Krakow, prepared according to the WHO recommendations, will work in a new safe form. Understanding that our audience’s fears are possible, we’ll also prepare an alternative form of participation in the festival – via the free streaming platform, where all competition films will be available.
See you in August at the 4rd Krakow Green Festival … because there is no planet B.

CRACOW GREEN FILM FESTIVAL AWARDS
Filmmakers are going to great lengths to uncover new territory and provide a new take on the most pressing environmental issues. Each year we honor a number of those films and filmmakers with a Cracow Green Film Festival Award.
Everything we do during KGFF is according to “green values”. That’s why, we couldn’t forget about eco-friendly statuettes for the winners of the Festival. We are proud to present statuettes made from recycled. This year they were made of used parts of cars, bikes and motorbikes.
