Climate Challenge: 1.5 Degrees Films invites people to make 90-second films to share their thoughts and ideas about climate change and how it is affecting us as individuals, our surroundings, families and communities. Youth groups, schools, community organisations, activist groups and individuals are encouraged to take part. Regardless of background, age or filmmaking experience, anyone anywhere can submit a film to the Challenge and there are resources available online to help people get started. The early deadline for film submissions is midnight on 24th October 2021.

Climate Challenge: 1.5 Degrees Films is set against the background of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP-26) taking place in Glasgow from 31st October to 12th November 2021. The Challenge is led by Film Access Scotland and supported by the National Lottery through Screen Scotland  and  by Keep Scotland Beautiful.

All eligible films submitted to the Challenge will be made available for viewing on Film Access Scotland’s website, may also be screened at fringe events in Glasgow in and around COP 26 and at events to celebrate the Challenge planned after COP26 where there will be commendations and prizes for filmmakers. Submissions from young people aged between 16 and 25 years will automatically be entered into Film Access Scotland’s Youth Film Festival in February 2022.

How would you reimagine life, the future for our beautiful country and for our planet? If you have any stories to tell then we are looking forward to seeing them in a 90 seconds!
