Take One Action Film Festival 2020

4th September 2020

Take One Action nurtures communal exploration of the stories, ideas and questions at the heart of positive social change. Join us online from 16-27 September 2020.

2020 has been a tumultuous year… but we’re pleased to be able to provide a tiny wee bit of stability: Take One Action’s annual film festival returns from 16-27 September. Taking place ONLINE for the first time in its history, the UK’s leading global change film festival offers 12 days of the most inspiring, challenging and urgent international cinema exploring social and environmental justice – all available from a sofa (very) near you.

All films are accessible from anywhere in the UK. Films can be booked on a “pay-what-you-can” basis, while all live Q&As and workshops are free to attend. Check out the full programme the Take One Action website.

Our raison d’être is to bring people together to encourage communal exploration of the stories, ideas and questions at the heart of positive social change. Though current circumstances mean that the communal spirit of our events will need to be summoned differently, we look forward to re-connecting with audiences across Scotland – and beyond – this September. We’re committed to responding to audiences’ appetite for challenging conversations – and to sparking people on their journey into action.

Our Shared Planet strand includes films that interrogate current environmental realities from a climate justice perspective:

Choose ‘Shared Planet’ from the ‘Festival Strand’ on the TOAFF website.

We’re delighted to be welcoming inspiring campaigners to the free, live Q&As and workshop that complement our film programme – and hope you’ll be able to join us.
