Moving Baltic Sea is a film and environmental festival travelling through the Baltic Sea on a sailing boat during the summer of 2008. The ship sets sail in Rostock and then anchors in the harbours of Gdansk, Kaliningrad, Riga, Narva-Jõesuu and St. Petersburg. At each stop, a four-day festival presents an international short film competition, screenings, a 48h film contest, and workshops. Films are selected by an international jury and compete for the Moving Baltic Sea Award. The winning film will be licensed and broadcasted by ARTE. With the unique combination of film and environment Moving Baltic Sea stimulates a creative process in both fields to inspire filmmakers and environmental activists alike. Moving Baltic Sea promotes a creative process to develop long-term innovative strategies and possibilities for cultural and environmental cooperation. The organisation of Moving Baltic Sea reaches across national borders: Over two years a network of film and environmental organisations from Germany, Poland, Latvia, Estonia and Russia is working closely together to make the festival happen at each tour stop. German film partner of Moving Baltic Sea is Moviemiento e.V. Based in Berlin, the travelling European short film festival "Moviemiento - short films on the road" promotes young European filmmakers and connects people, places and cultures by way of film and travel. Rather than being restricted to a single location, Moviemiento screens films open-air on public spaces in different cities throughout Europe, which allows the festival to incorporate the unique atmosphere of each city. Moving Baltic Sea takes Moviemiento off the roads and for the first time onto the seas! Send in your short films that tell Stories from the Seaside.
