COVID-19 UPDATE

Our team has made the difficult decision to postpone the Edinburgh Green Film Festival that was due to take place in late July this year.

 

Until further information is available about the reopening of cinemas and the safety of events in the current climate, we are unable to commit to our original July dates.

 

Keeping an eye on our website as well as our socials will help us stay in touch about the future of our festival. We will keep you informed when our plans develop.

 

For now, please stay safe and take care.

ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

At Edinburgh Green Film Festival, we recognise that we have a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. As part of the Scottish creative and arts industry, we have an opportunity to inform and inspire our audiences and with our festival aiming to encourage discussion of environmental issues, we know it's important to uphold a strong green policy that translates to environmentally-conscious decision making.

We are a member of Creative Carbon Scotland’s Green Arts Initiative programme, a network of organisations that work towards increasing the environmental sustainability of the Scottish arts community. We participate through the use of their tools and resources, and by communicating our data for annual feedback reports.
