Environmental Care in a Film Festival

Biodiversidad and Isabel Isabellae take part in six festivals.


In 2014, the Comunidad de Madrid, through its Department of the Environment and Territorial Organisation, and the School of Cinematography and Audiovisuals—ECAM, joined forces to produce three short films that would be shot in the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park and stress the importance of caring for the environment. Now two of the films will be taking part in six different film festivals.

Thus, Biodiversidad—directed by Guillermo Chapa, performed by Juanjo Ballesta and Michelle Jenner, and executive production by David Pinillos—will compete at Festimatge—held in Calella from 4 to 26 April, at Skepto International Film—staged in the Italian town of Cagliari between 10 and 20 April, at Ecozine International Film Festival Saragossa—from 7 to16 May, and at the Festival Cortos Rodinia—held in Valladolid from 20 February to 1 July. In its turn, Isabel Isabellae—directed by Amanda Rodríguez, performed by Irene Escolar, Tamar Novas and Martiño Rivas, and executive production by Mariano Barroso—will also be shown at Festimatge and will compete at the Semana de Cine de Medina del Campo—from 13 to 21 March.
