Ekofilm will bring several exhibitions

The program of Ekofilm film festival includes several interesting exhibitions. In the foyer of the Akord culture house, an interactive exhibition Water and its Animals will take place. In the foyer of the Vesmír cinema, not only boys will certainly be intrigued by the exhibition called Man and Nature Influence Each Other, or: From the Slide Rule to a Supercomputer. It is organized by the VŠB – Technical University of Ostrava. “This exhibition is actually a brief history from human-conducted arithmetic to a supercomputer that is able to calculate things we cannot even imagine. There you will be able to see a supercomputer model as well as six information panels. The exhibition will be on display throughout the festival and it is intended for general public – visitors of all ages,” said the co-organizer Bohuslava Dostálová. The Ostrava Museum is organizing the exhibitions Year of Farming Families and Year of Crystallography (with crystals, minerals and photos of crystals). The Amos Family Care Center has prepared an exhibition called Birds on Land and Water. And last, but not least, the Faculty of Science of University of Ostrava invites all nature lovers to the exhibition Water in a Thousand Forms.
