Taking place each year up and down the country, the UK Green Film Festival screens some of the very best films from around the world, exploring some of the big environmental issues of the day.

A new wave of climate activists is rising, concerned and angry about our future in an ever warming world.

Are people listening? Will governments care?

NOW follows this young generation of rebels as they do everything they can to challenge the status quo and push for social and political change.

From Greta Thunberg's landmark school strikes to Vic Barrett's youth movement to sue the U.S. government over the continued use of fossil fuels, director Jim Rakete is joined by iconic veterans of protest Wim Wenders and Patti Smith to ask some of the most prominent voices in the climate rebellion what motivates them to take to the streets.

Presented by UK Green Film Festival in collaboration with Coventry City of Culture and Cinecov

Includes a post screening panel talk with Rob Hamp, joined by Tara Rutledge, Ana Isabel Vasconcelos and Antonis Kousoulas to discuss themes of the film including how we have to adapt in order to react and reflections on the journey of Rob’s current work “Art Can be Rubbish Too

Rob Hamp, Art Can be Rubbish Too has been co-commissioned with UK City of Culture 2021 and Coventry Biennial as part of Green Futures supported by National Lottery Heritage Fund and Severn Trent Community Fund as part of the Exhibition Proof.


Suitable for all ages.
