Calling all young changemakers and film enthusiasts for a morning of award-winning animated films on the climate emergency, followed by an animation workshop.

Join us as we follow a stork in its colourful migration across the world and explore reintroducing nature to both cities. We will also hear from the Waves of Change young filmmakers, Waves of Change is a project helping young people tell their story about the impact of climate change on communities in Cornwall.

Waves of Change will also run a stop motion animation workshop after the screening, where you can try out exploring climate change through animation before taking your project home to continue the experiments!

This short film programme and family workshop is suitable for children aged 8-14. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

The short films in the programme include:

  • A Stork’s Journey (dirs: Karrie Fransman, Brigitta Keaves, Ben Worku-Dix, 2020, 5m). Fly with white storks as they migrate from Germany to Sudan, navigating the perils of pollution, pesticides, and electricity wires. Nominated for the Best Climate Emergency Film of the Year, Research in Film Awards 2020.
  • The Promise (dir: Chi Thai, 2021, 6m 41s) A young girl introduces nature to a city and discovers how, to rewild the world, she must rewild herself first. Nominated for the Best Climate Emergency Film of the Year, Research in Film Awards 2021.
  • Waves of Change (2m) A short film on the work of the young filmmakers from the Waves of Change project and how they've been using animation to create their own climate films.

This event is supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC, part of UKRI) as part of their Research in Film Awards (RIFA) Climate Screenings 2022. The films shown as part of these screenings were shortlisted for the RIFA Best Climate Emergency Film of the Year category 2020/2021 and showcase cutting-edge climate research in the arts and humanities. Free screenings and film events will also take place across Cardiff and Glasgow in April.
