Cineplexx, Murska Sobota

EPEKA, Ltd. is organising a screening of films in Murska Sobota as part of the EU Youth Cinema: Green Deal (EUYC:GD 2024-2026).

EU Youth Cinema: Green Deal is an innovative project dedicated to a sustainable Europe, presenting the European Union’s green objectives in a cinematic context, contributing to the appreciation and understanding of the EU’s Green Deal, mainly among young viewers, and providing a platform for a multicultural approach to the Green Agenda. We have successfully implemented the project in the period 2022-2024, involving almost 5,000 young people in film events in seven Slovenian cities and thousands more in the streaming part of the programme. We are continuing the project in 2024-2026, with a further 23 screenings across Slovenia and online engagement through www.euyc.green.

EUYC:GD 2024-2026 will be actively co-created by the same four partners who are already behind the success of the previous edition 2022-2024 EUYC:GD: the LET’S CEE Filmfestival Association and the communication consultancy agency Chapter 4 from Austria, the Scientific Research Association for Arts, Cultural and Educational Programmes and Technology EPEKA from Slovenia and the Go Green Skopje Association from North Macedonia. A new partner in the group is the Ukrainian NGO INNOVATION GENERATION, which will launch the Ukrainian edition of EUYC:GD.

THE GREEN LIE (10+)
Directed by Werner Boote
Genres: Documentary | Runtime: 97 min.

Environmentally friendly electric cars, sustainably produced food, fair production. Sounds too good to be true! Big companies want to convince us that we can save the world just by buying the right products. But this is an extremely widespread and dangerous lie. In his documentary, Werner Boote joins forces with Katharina Hartmann, an expert on false green advertising, to find out how we can defend ourselves against this lie. Stop the green lies!
