The Edinburgh Green Film Festival is a small team of impassioned folk with the aim to establish the first film festival focused on climate change and environmental filmmaking taking place in Edinburgh. Edinburgh has a thriving film culture, paired with an engaged passion for resolving the climate crisis. Our hope is to provide a film festival that will educate and engage the people of Edinburgh about the most pressing environmental issues we face.

We recognise that we have a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements
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. Our goal is to ultimately run at a carbon deficit.
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.
