News: Take One Action Film Festival returns to Aberdeen & Inverness!

24th October 2018

Join Take One Action to discover the most acclaimed documentaries focusing on environmental justice!

Take One Action – Scotland’s global change cinema project – returns to Aberdeen and Inverness this November to premiere the most acclaimed international documentaries focusing on environmental and social justice.

At a time when concepts of truth and democracy are being stretched beyond recognition, the tide of political upheavals, environmental threats and isolationism can feel overwhelming. Our programme offers an antidote to despair and powerlessness.

We believe in the transformative power of film – and we are honoured to be sharing the stories of individuals and communities whose very resilience, tenacity and hope are radical acts of defiance. These include a Micronesian nation’s president’s urgent calls for climate action (Anote’s Ark), a community radically redefining their relationship with nature (The Cloud Forest) and a tireless activist committed to ending corruption and environmental destruction in Liberia (Silas).

The films we screen and the conversations we foster do more than open eyes and minds: they are a direct invitation to reshape our world for the better – right here, right now.

Take a seat. Take a stand.
