Savonlinna International Nature Film Festival is a four-day interdisciplinary event in the heart of Savonlinna. The festival program includes nature and environmental films, music, art, discussions, outdoor screenings and program for the whole family. Our values are strongly based on the appreciation and protection of nature. Our role is also to convey knowledge about nature and environment through film and art, and to influence people’s actions at grassroots level. The festival wants to increase the appreciation of environmental themed film and biodiversity in all age groups and has been working on these goals for ten years. Through the programme we bring forth topics related to wider societal environmental discussions. The films also introduces perspective beyond our anthropocentric worldview and into the worlds of other species. The multi-themed programme emphasizes on the interactions in the world around us and we prefer introducing solution-based approaches. Our diverse side-event programme has become an important part of our festival identity. The annually changing interdisciplinary repertoire has in the past included puppetry, word art, excursions, visual art, music of different genres as well as discussion events on film, nature and environmental issues.
