What defines an ‘environmental film’? Do films have a role to play in raising awareness and changing our culture towards a more sustainable one?
To explore these questions we’ll be joined by Scott Donaldson, Head of Film Education at Creative Scotland and Aimara Reques, Producer of the extraordinary documentary Aquarela (release date 2018), with screenings of film clips old and new, and audience discussion.
We hope you can join us to make new connections between those working across the areas of film, media, TV, environmental sustainability and climate change!
