Girona Festival Shorts environmental SOMCURTS

For many years, the Associació de Naturalistes de Girona has attempted to show the best images of our natural environment through the photography. Static images that show us the strength and the fragility of our planet of the hand of the best photographers, professional as well as enthusiastic. Now, conscious of the creative capacities of the participants, we turn on a new stage. From the ANG we want to invite you to a new adventure, an adventure that has to show us the problems, the victories, the dangers and the hopes of our environment in short audiovisual format. When we talk about environment, we mean everything that happens in this thin layer where the human being is related to their environment and other species, in short, where life reaches its maximum. With the aim of showing the whole range of problems and wonders, has born the Girona Festival Shorts environmental SOMCURTS. A festival that should allow us to travel to the soul of the earth.
