The UK Green Film Festival returns with a new programme of environmentally themed films from around the world, highlighting topics from climate change and food sustainability, to land rights and politics.

The Hurt Locker meets An Inconvenient Truth, The Age of Consequences explores the risk of climate change and resource scarcity through the lens of US national security and global stability. Through unflinching case-study analysis, distinguished admirals, generals and military veterans take us beyond the headlines of the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab spring, the rise of radicalised groups like ISIS, and the European refugee crisis, and lays bare how climate change stresses interact with societal tensions, sparking conflict.

“The election of climate change denier Donald Trump underscores the urgency of this doc.” - Toronto Star
