Welcome you to the website of our international film festival T-film Ostrava.
AN INTRODUCTION TO THE FESTIVAL
International film festival T-film Ostrava follows the traditions of another similar festival about our living environment – Ekofilms, which moved from Ostrava a number of years ago. Our festival TUR ( = Trvale Udržitelný Rozvoj) which means long-term sustainable development, would like to continue in its footprints. The themes surrounding environmental problems have been further enriched to include other aspects such as human relations and economic phenomena, and their impact on our lives.
In it’s almost seven year existence, the TUR festival has become a firm component of the spring cultural program in Ostrava. It is held annually in the City of Ostrava House of Culture, but its ongoing growth has seen it expand to other locations. For the seventh installment we have established many new partnerships including the 1st International School of Ostrava, Agency for Nature Conservation and Landscape Protection of the Czech Republic (AOPK ČR) and the project Ostrava - The Main Europe City of Culture 2015.
Awaiting festival attendees is a selection of films and documentaries about the environment and its protection, with works not just from Czech but also international filmmakers. Viewers can thus compare how ecological problems are dealt with in other corners of the world. In addition to the four days of film screenings, as always there will be prepared an accompanying program for viewers. It will be include discussions with experienced experts from various fields, workshops and cultural performances.
TUR FILM Ostrava 2013 will be arranged by Fabex Media in association with the statutory City of Ostrava, the Moravia-Silesia Region, and the Agency for Nature Conservation and Landscape Protection of the Czech Republic.
Entry to all festival events if entirely free of charge.
There is no a better place in Europe to submit your films and documentaries, that deal with all topics on sustainable development, than Ostrava in the Czech Republic.
After Prague and Brno, Ostrava is the third largest city in the Czech Republic, and well known for three different reasons, all of them connected with environmental affairs:
- For decades, Ostrava was called the “Steel Heart of the Republic” because the coal and steel industry was concentrated in the city; but less respect was paid to environmental protection.
- Due to the contamination of air, water, and soil resources, Ostrava and its surroundings became a part of the heavily polluted “Black Triangle Region” located near the Czech, German and Polish borders.
- For several years, Ostrava has been successfully attempting to reestablish sound environments and economic prosperity for all citizens in the region.
