International Ocean Film Festival Kiel
CINEMARE is Northern Europe's only multi-day marine film festival. Visitors immerse themselves in the blue heart of our planet via the cinema screen. Those who experience the sea through their senses will love it - and only those who love it will also commit themselves to its protection.
At the NORDEN Festival, selected films from the CINEMARE Ocean Film Festival will be shown.
Welcome to the world of PLSTC, an undersea dystopia that submerges you in the disturbing reality of plastic pollution in our oceans. Through a series of graphically confronting AI-generated and hand-composed images of ocean creatures, this experimental animated film confronts you with the devastating consequences of our habits on marine life, and leaves you gasping for breath.

So the garbage will have to look for alternative places of retreat in order to survive.
ICEBERG-LICKING SOCIETY Language: English
We may have to explain to our children not only what pencils have to do with cassettes, but also what icebergs were. ILS uses the remaining time and licks them.
