Ecofilms, the International Films & Visual Arts Festival in Rhodes, Greece, opened its 6th edition with the screening of Echoes of War by Joop van Wijk from The Netherlands.As he presented his film to the audience of the Rodon open air theater, the Dutch director stressed on what a paradox it is to open a festival on ecology with a film about war.

Ecocinema awards its top prize to The Corporation

The closing ceremony of Ecocinema 4 th International Environmental Film Festival took place in the National Theatre in the city of Rhodes , Greece , due to a slightly windy weather that could have made the scheduled event in the Rodon outdoor theatre somewhat uncomfortable. Yet the indoor setting perfectly fitted the theme of the evening since the ceremony began with the screening of documentaries on Rhodes filmed by the Istituto Luce between 1924 and 1941.
