From 18th to 21st May, 2020 : VACARISSES : BARCELONA
3rd INTERNATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL FILM FESTIVAL
With great regret, we must announce that the Green Planet Barcelona Festival will not take place, and that this will be another enforced fallow year for us.
In spite of our efforts to move Heaven & Earth, it has become clear that we simply will not be able to make the Festival happen this year 2021. We are so sorry to let you all down.
As you already know, the Festival is organized by a school in Vacarisses, Spain. Since March 2020, we have not been able to work on the organization of the Festival and our main venue has been closed since the same date. The students who used to organize the event graduate this year so we do not know if new students will join the project in the following years. In addition, the management team of our school changes this year. therefore, we must present the project to the incoming management team and see if we can continue with it. At the moment, the situation is quite unpredictable.
Thus, we are forced to cancel the event until further notice.
We thank you for your incredible continued support and let’s look forward to better times ahead.
