WITH LIVE STREAM Q&A WITH DIRECTOR DAMON GAMEAU
NCC have teamed up with 'Into Film Festival' to bring you a truly remarkable one off simultaneous screening of the Climate Change Film 2040.
Cited as the first film aimed at young audiences to offer a hopeful response to youth ‘eco-anxiety’, 2040 looks to a future two decades ahead, where it has been possible to galvanise a global movement to invest in regenerative solutions that improve the wellbeing of the planet. Positive, practical and informative, the Festival’s 2040 launch events, screening as part of the Festival’s ‘Natural World’ strand, will be supported by celebrity special guests and a UK network of Greenpeace speakers. Award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film) embarks on a journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream.
Ed Fuller, campaigner for Greenpeace UK, said: “We’re delighted that our Greenpeace volunteers will be presenting to young audiences across the UK, where they’ll be talking about the need to protect the environment, the climate emergency we’re facing and what can be done to help. This is a great opportunity to reach the next generation of climate campaigners and activists.”
This year’s Into Film Festival will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and with Unicef UK we are encouraging children and young people to celebrate this landmark moment and stand up for their rights and be inspired by young people in films and on screen making a difference.
This is event is a FREE screening to all schools - so please book in advance to claim your students free place
