Since FICMEC first stablished in Garachico, this town turned into a flimnig set during the festival’s elebration. This idea, that shares audiovisual capacities with the generation of symbolic projection of the territory, with the need for an environmental speech that goes from local to universal contexts and the pedagogical function stablished every year between sound-image students from Tenerife and the invited professional directors that makes Ecocine one of the most profitable and wanted cinematographic activities of our festival. During our last edition, the Galician film-maker Otto Roca oversaw the coordination of a piece of seaside sensations, where image and sound mixed together to make us travel along a magic afternoon. Fernando Vílchez worked on a very significant piece in 2015: a tour from Arenas Negras to the seaside, which represented Garachico’s volcanic eruption in 1706. In 2014 the two specialized directors Francisco and Armando del Rosario worked on sea bottoms near to Garachico, while in 2013 Pedro Felipe Acosta, invited producer, worked on a conservationist piece representing El Roque natural monument.
In 2017 Miguel Angel Rolland will supervise Ecocine Espress.
