● Inaugural documentary film: Jane, a biopic of the charismatic primatologist Jane Goodall and her tireless defense of chimpanzees produced by National Geographic. This will be the first time Jane will be projected on the big screen in Spain.
● Another Way Film Festival is a festival about the sustainable progress in Madrid.
Says Marta García Larriu, Director of the Film Festival: The programming of Another Way is “avante-garde, entertaining and audacious that will encourage us to pose questions that may make some feel uneasy but the questions are necessary. Through the Festival we’ll get to know the incredible stories of the heroes of our time.”
During the Festival experts, filmmakers and representatives of institutions on Environment will be around to talk about sustainability. The Jane Goodall Institute in Spain, the Spanish Confederation of Consumers and the Users (CECU), and Caminando Fronteras (Walking Frontiers) among others will be there. The public, participating in an interactive way, will thus develop critical thought about the preservation of the Environment.
