The UK Green Film Festival showcases the work of filmmakers on the theme of environment and climate change

There is a plethora of films around that are attempting to tackle green issues but extending their reach to mainstream audiences hasn't always been easy. Enter the UK Green Film Festival; a not-for-profit event that aims to showcase some of the best British eco-centred films.

Running from Friday May 20th to Sunday May 22nd, the festival is working with five cinemas in Leeds, Cardiff, Leicester, Glasgow, and London. In addition to the films themselves, several of the filmmakers will be touring the locations and doing Q&A sessions with the audience following screenings. Pete Wilkinson, co-founder of both Friends of the Earth and Greenpeace, will be visiting several venues to introduce a film and answer audience questions. There will be additional events held alongside each film, so there will be plenty of information for those curious about the issues each film explores.

Cost: Some films will be free; the rest will be priced by the venues

When: Friday May 20th to Sunday May 22nd

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
