Season

Please note: this season finished in Nov 2019

This Autumn the UK Green Film Festival gets ready to bring the very best environmentally themed films from around the world to cinemas nationwide, directing a spotlight on global environmental stories and celebrating the best in independent filmmaking.

The programme at Watershed includes The Green Lie, the latest film by Austrian director Werner Boote, an investigative documentary that questions whether industry's "green products" are nothing more than a sales strategy, and Nikolaus Geyrhalter’s multiple award-winning new film Earth, which looks at the mining and construction sites ravaging the planet.
