Portofino Marine Protected Area (Italy) is organizing on December 6, 7 and 8, 2013, a film festival on MPAs around the globe. Film makers may answer its call for submissions until October 15, 2013.
Camogli International Marine Reserves Film Festival (INMARE) will showcase short-, medium and full-length films that raise public awareness of the strategic role marine protected areas play in protecting biodiversity.
The festival will underline actions taken and to be taken to alleviate human-induced threats. It accepts film that have been shot inside marine reserves and that highlight their naturalistic, ecological, ethnographical, historical or managerial dimensions (including conservation methods, human activities, sustainable development, and relationships between humans and their environment). Monographies on specific species, whether fauna or flora, will also be considered, as will be films dealing with abiotic topics (such as social and economic issues).
MedPAN, the network of Mediterranean MPA managers, is a supporter of the festival, which is also backed by the Italian Ministry in charge of the Environment and of the Sea, the regional government of Liguria, Fedepachi (Italian network of nature parks and reserves) and the University of Genoa.
Created in 1999, Portofino Marine Protected Area surrounds a promontory that extends along a 13 km coastline, in Liguria, in Northwestern Italy. Camogli is a typical fishing village nested on a coast that stands under pressure from intensive tourism.
