Sustainable Living Film Festival at Pera Museum

The Sustainable Living Film Festival (SLFF) will meet with its audience in Istanbul from Nov. 19 to 22 to hear the planet’s call for change during this extraordinary period the world is going through.

The SLFF2020 selection shows that achieving a sustainable global civilization is only possible when the environment and conditions of all living beings on the planet are sustainable; it reminds us that the season, the air, the water, the soil, the wild, the farmer, the seed, the forest, the insect, the tomato and the neighbor must be good for us to be good. If everyone is good, we are fine too.

Twenty feature length and short documentary films that will be screened at Pera Museum cover a very wide range of subjects and approaches such as sustainable farming and food systems, seed, regenerative ranching, right to water, climate change and migration, gold mining and wastes, megafires, biodiversity, nature preservation and wildlife, social entrepreneurship and sustainable economy.

The opening of the festival will be made with the film “Nations United: Urgent Solutions for Urgent Times,” which was made by the U.N. to celebrate its 75th anniversary and the fifth anniversary of Sustainable Development Goals.
