Co-organised by the Greens/EFA, Point M.I.R and the Kinograph, the first edition of the Green Tech Film Festival is coming to Brussels.

As part of the Green Tech Film Festival, four groundbreaking documentaries will be screened over two days at the Kinograph.

The documentaries will all reveal, in their own way, the dark side of the electronics industry. We invite you to investigate the fatal environmental and health repercussions of our technology. Take a journey to the heart of datacenters that operate day and night. Look behind the scenes at Europe’s largest landfill in Africa. Find out who are the losers of the digital revolution.

Join us, as we ask : how do we manage metal resources on a global scale ? What are "blood minerals" ? Why does the system push us to produce and throw away more and more ? Can we rely on the European recycling system ? Is the battle against the waste floating in our oceans already lost ? Are we in “the era of extractivism” ?
