The festival opened at Cinema City Aupark in Bratislava between October 17 and 21 and is now moving on to Košice, Žilina and Trnava, with more than one hundred films being screened in these cities up to the end of November. Part of the festival is the Honour of Ekotopfilm Prize. This year the award went to US filmmaker and Emmy winner Allison Argo, who came to personally accept it and commented that she tries to think globally and achieve a global impact with her documentaries. Her film Frogs – The Thin Green Line is shown at the festival. The festival attracted more than 70,000 people last year. Its purpose is to educate and make changes in mindset. Admission is free and more information is available at its website: www.ekotopfilm.sk.
