(In order to grade the quality of the movie we use qualitative criteria)

This category is concerned with grading the measure of the movie’s contribution to the development of social cohesion (encouragement of the viewer to cooperate, the development of positive relations with other people or the personal development of the viewer) or the way it encourages the preservation of the planet Earth’s ecosystems. Movies which promote violence of any kind or infringe on human rights in any way will be disqualified and will not enter the official selection roster of the festival.
