A major film festival leaves its mark. Positive traces in the minds of visitors, but unfortunately also an ecological footprint.
Youth Film Festival Antwerp tries to reduce its CO2 emissions and waste production, and encourages its audience and guests to do the same.
Youth Film Festival Antwerp and the on tour locations are accessible by public transport, on foot or by bicycle. We ask our visitors not to come by car if possible.
On our website, we clearly communicate the many transport options to the different locations and the nearest bicycle stations.
Youth Film Festival Antwerp invites as many guests from Belgium and the Netherlands as possible and encourages them to come by train. We only book plane tickets for international guests if this is the only option.
We ask our staff and volunteers to come by bicycle or public transportation as well.
When Youth Film Festival Antwerp manages the venue itself, it opts for local catering with vegetarian, vegan and organic options and reusable materials.
In terms of content, Youth Film Festival Antwerp also pursues sustainability. In our programming of films, games and installations, we pay attention to ecological and inclusive content.
JEF makes it easy to find or offer quality youth films and games. To broaden the horizons of children and young people. To encourage experimentation and creation.
