Sondrio Festival is a unique international film festival, mainly dedicated to nature films, of high scientific and cinematographic level, made in protected areas worldwide. It takes place every year since 1987 in Sondrio, Italy, in November, during two weeks. Due to the Covid-Pandemic, the films of the 2020 were presented only in streaming. Therefore, the festival will be holding a Summer Special Edition from June 14th to June 20th to present these films again but to an audience in attendance this time. Seats can be reserved starting from Friday 4th June, up to 24 hours before the selected evening, and until the maximum capacity is reached. Among the 2020 films to be presented, "Natura senza confini" (Nature Without Borders) is a short documentary set in the Triglav National Park in Slovenia and the Julian Prealps National Park in Italy which are both ALPARC's members.
The works presented in the competition are selected from the best productions worldwide: among the past festivals winners are film-makers from all over the world and famous personalities in the field of nature documentary. Further film sections may be set up for documentaries made in natural areas, highlighting problems concerning the environment, its conservation, human activities, agriculture and sustainable development. The aims of the Festival are the diffusion of the culture of nature parks, protected areas and environmental protection, environmental education and the promotion of nature films.
