OXFORD GREEN WEEK LAUNCH EVENT - UK GREEN FILM FESTIVAL SCREENING / TUE 9 MAY
Posted: Wed 12 Apr
On Tuesday 9th May, Oxford Green Week will launch their upcoming festival with special screening of UK Green Film Festival title 'How To Let Get of the World and Love All Things Climate Can’t Change'. The documentary will be followed by a panel discussion with local green and environmental experts.
The documentary sees Oscar-nominated director Josh Fox (Gasland) traveling to twelve countries on six continents and asking the question: what is it that climate change can’t destroy? The film acknowledges that that it may be too late to stop some of the worst consequences of climate change and attempts to discover what is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away.
The post-screening discussion panel features the following experts: Peter Lefort (Chair) of the Eden Project; Dot Tiwari from Abundance Oxford and an instigator and a member of several grass-roots and community projects; Jenny Carr, the organiser behind the annual Oxford Green Week festival for the city, which has grown to be a huge city-wide celebration involving over 80 partner organisations and featuring more than 100 events each year; and Jamie Clarke, the Executive Director of Climate Outreach, Europe's leading climate change communication organisation.
The film begins at 6pm and the discussion will take place between 8-8.30pm.
This special one-off screening is a launch event for Oxford Green Week which takes place between 17th and 25th June with events all over the city. For more information on Oxford Green Week, visit their website: http://oxfordgreenweek.org
