Fogo Island Film is dedicated to supporting independent and experimental film production and to participating in contemporary artistic and scientific debate that addresses nature and culture as an indivisible whole.

Broaching themes of environmental degradation, the interconnectedness of species, geopolitical migration, the commodification of nature, Indigenous perspectives, social activism, as well as lives lived in deep connection with the natural world, the films question or condemn our actions, offer alternative perspectives and occasionally, suggest hope for a brighter future.

Fogo Island Film 2019: Resistance and Resilience is co-curated by researcher and theorist Goran Petrović-Lotina, founder of FIF, and FIA Director of Programs and Exhibitions Alexandra McIntosh.
