Join us 2-10 November for the first year that we welcome the festival which aims to unite movie lovers and green enthusiasts by exploring environmental issues through the use of film.
This November we are delighted to welcome the UK Green Film Festival for the first time. Taking place each year up and down the country, the UK Green Film Festival screens some of the very best films from around the world, exploring some of the big environmental issues of the day. With the ever increasing importance to work sustainably and protect our planet, we are proud to highlight global environmental stories and support this significant festival.
The 2022 official programme is made up of five films, four of which have been directed by women. The programme brings together films from all over the world. Taking audiences from remote Arctic islands to Brazil’s violent borderlands and the communities planting Canada’s forests, these five films present some of the most urgent, debated and misunderstood topics of today, including climate change, energy resources, activism and corporate corruption.
Brewery Arts will screen three films between 2-10 November. The Wind Blows the Border, from Laura Faerman & Marina Weis is set on Brazil’s violent borderlands, following the growth of ruralist political power, and the intimacy of indigenous female resistance. The North Drift, directed by Steffen Krones, takes the audience to a remote Artic island on a journey of personal curiosity. Forest for the Trees, by Rita Leistner weaves together photography and film to tell the story of a community of Canadian west coast tree planters.
Brewery Arts is proud to be partnered with South Lakes Action on Climate Change Towards Transition (SLACCtt), a community-based charity which brings together people who want to do something about climate change and promote a more sustainable lifestyle.
