Festival Overview

"Quotes from the Earth” has been first of its kind in the Indian Capital since 2004. It uses a discursive platform to highlight environmental challenges at the national and international level through films, which happen to be one of the most powerful medium of communication and discussion.

The festival, which is a collaborative effort by Toxics Link and India International Centre, Delhi brings under one umbrella the persistent and persuasive films on all shades of environment - from vanishing bio-diversity to rampant mining, lives of tribes to global climate change, threats to lakes and river contamination to forest conservation, and household waste to solutions of global energy challenges.

Since its inception it has attracted an overwhelming audience as well as films and filmmakers from around the globe; and each time it has grown and become all the more popular. A panel discussion is also conducted during the film festival to provide the audience with a wider context to the meaning of films and their role in societal change.
