With an impressive line-up of environmentally themed titles, the annual UK Green Film Festival returns to cinemas across the UK from 3 – 10 May. Sponsored by Friends of the Earth, the festival programme includes seven feature length documentaries, including a European premiere and five UK premieres, from all over the world. Each documentary will also compete for the coveted Palme Verte Award, as well as the UKGFF Audience Award. The festival will host a number of special events including guest speakers, Q&A’s and talks with filmmakers, environmental campaigners and pioneering green thinkers.
The festival opens on 3 May with the European premiere of Bikes vs Cars directed by Fredrik Gertten, straight from its world premiere at SXSW in Austin, Texas. The inspiring documentary investigates the daily global traffic dramas and meets with cycling activists fighting for safer and cleaner cities. The festival’s closing gala will be held on 10 May with an awards ceremony and special guests from film and the environmental movement.
