The full programme for this year’s Festival is now live!
Through a resolutely global lens, the films and events in the line-up celebrate community, conversation and connection. They have streamlined their 12-day programme to focus on one feature film every night, each followed by an online conversation with filmmakers and campaigners from around the globe.
These are complemented by specially curated programmes of short films, interactive workshops and events. All films will be accessible to anyone in the UK, offered on a “pay what you can” basis, and captioned for D/deaf and hard-of-hearing audiences.
From freedom of the press to prison reform, from labour rights in the garment industry to indigenous rights and climate justice, the programme offers a much-needed opportunity to connect with some of our planets most pressing issues – and to (re-)connect with our power to be the change.
Join online from 16-27 September for the 13th edition of the UK’s leading global change film festival!
Take a seat. Take a stand.
