Mission / description Sustainable Living Film Festival was initiated by a group of committed and passionate friends in 2008 to raise awareness around the concept of sustainability. The Festival is touching on different aspects of sustainability through screening inspiring documentaries. It invites people to hope and commonsense, by presenting efforts, thought systems, actions, teachings, new levels of consciousness and the vision towards sustainable living around the world.

What is notable about the festival is not solely limited by the documentaries. Colorful side events with guest speakers, musicians, etc, the festival’s function of creating a platform to meet, its sustainability conscious supporters and the very process of the festival production make the festival a significant example.

To better pass the message, documentaries with holistic views, creative solutions and with a heartfelt story telling are chosen.

The first film festival in 2008 took place only in Istanbul with around 1.500 visitors. Last year in 2014, it was held concurrently in 11 cities presenting 20 documentaries to 10.000 visitors, with 81 guest speakers and 20 performance groups.
