Over the three days, the main focus will be on the films submitted for the International Nature & Environmental Film Festival and the Carpathian Basin Natural Values Film Festival, the best selected by a panel of experts and screened here.

There will be live music, too, provided by Gigi Radics, Sziszi Szakács and Dirty Slippers. A roundtable discussion will allow Angéla Eke, Laura Döbrösi, Diana Ürge-Vorsatz and Tamás Vitray Jr to share their thoughts, while a filmmaking workshop and quizzes should also appeal to Hungarian speakers.

Outlets of Trash Art and WWF, craft fairs and outdoor exhibitions will be set up, as well as a street ball on Saturday and an open-air cinema on Sunday.
