The Byre Raises Awareness for Climate Change

The Green Film Festival returns.

The Green Film Festival is back. “Can You Dig This,” “Billions in Change,” “Rock the Boat,” “My Stuff,” and “Pachama” will all be screened bigger and better than ever before. The Byre Theatre dedicates four nights towards promoting a positive change for the uncertain future of our environment.

The films cover a wide range of topics about our precious planet; from finding pure happiness by rebuilding your everyday existence in “My Stuff,” to “Can You Dig This” which presents an “urban garden revolution” in the built-up city of Los Angeles that encourages watchers to “put their hands in soil” and slowly improve the environment.

If the films aren’t enough, The Green Film Festival also has a great mix of entertaining and inspiring guest speakers lined up, who will develop the information expressed through the films. Additionally, there will be a highly anticipated panel discussion on the environmental implications of the highly controversial Brexit.

At the event, the Leafies short film competition winners will also be announced. As many worked hard to create the perfect short film, the finalists eagerly await the winner’s unveiling on 12th February. Following this, another film will be shown made by previous students who provide an insight into the lives of the Kallawayas – an ideal world where the Earth is treated the way you would treat a loved one, with the upmost respect, love and care.

Christy McFadyen, an organiser of the event, explained how one of the most dramatic years in history – 2016 – brought uncertainty for the environment and social justice. She informs us that “people will find this festival refreshing because we’ve chosen to focus on the positive actions that people have taken to build a better world in the face of uncertainty.” 

Christy adds that “this year emphasises the collective nature of environmental issues and the need for collective action for people and the planet, as well as every individual’s ability to have a positive impact on the world.” 

The Byre Theatre hopes to see you from the 9th to the 13th of February for the Green Film Festival. Tickets can already be purchased online: up to £5 per screening or £18 for all four nights. Discounts are also available, if purchasing before the event. For further information on timings and screenings available please visit the Byre’s website.
