From June 1 to 4, 2023, the III International Ecoperformance Filmfestival will again showcase an instigating variety of artistic works responding to the ecopolitical challenges of the 21st century.
Encouraged by the eco-responsible approach of the new Brazilian government, the festival organizers expect a substantial resonance of transdisciplinary proposals - from low to high tech - by artists exploring the tensions between environment, body, and ancestry in natural, urban and virtual landscapes.
The participation of creatives from five continents during the prior festival editions allowed for the presentation of more than 80 films and unfolded in subsequent presentations of selected works in partnership with cultural and educational institutions in Argentina, Brazil, France, Greece, and Thailand.
The transmission of the 3rd edition will occur on the festival's YouTube channel as well as in person in partnership with Cine Satyros Bijou in São Paulo.
Submissions of works created between 2020 and 2023 and with a duration between 3 and 25 minutes will be received from January 15 to March 30, 2023.

In cooperation with the Graduate Program in Performing Arts at the Federal University of Goiás, the festival will continue its editorial project initiated in 2022 with the publication of the ebook Ecoperformance.
The International Ecoperformance Filmfestival is conceived and directed by Brazilian choreographer Maura Baiocchi and organized by Taanteatro Companhia, São Paulo/Brazil.
