Planet in Focus is Canada’s most acclaimed
International Environmental Film and Video festival. Our annual film
fest showcases compelling documentaries, animation, dramatic features,
shorts, and experimental works that celebrate, question, and establish
varied ways of viewing the state of our world.
The 8th Annual Festival will take place October 24-28, 2007. View the festival schedule.
2007 Festival Spotlight: Polar Visions
to the overwhelming success of our inaugural Spotlight Program last
year, we are launching a new theme for this year’s spotlight: Polar Visions.
In celebration of the 125th anniversary of International Polar Year,
an initiative that launched international scientific Polar research and
exploration in the late 19th Century, Planet in Focus will spotlight
works from and about the Circumpolar regions of the Arctic and the
Antarctic. Special consideration will be given to works covering the
themes of International Polar Year: atmosphere, ice, land, oceans,
people and space.
