CLIMATE CRISIS FILM FESTIVAL

Cinema has always been a powerful tool for climate action. REGISTER for the climate fim festival to see storytelling from around the globe.


RAINN IN GREENLAND — Actor Rainn Wilson goes up in a helicopter above Greenland to learn how melting glaciers cause a rise in sea levels — all thanks to climate change. (SoulPancake)

DRAGGING US ALL DOWN UNDER — Of all the misleading claims about hitting climate goals, Australia’s might just be king. See how the coal-dependant country has cheated the system.  (The Guardian)

DIFFERENCE IN DEGREES — It may not sound like a lot, but a 3-degree difference in our world will be catastrophic. What will climate change really look like if we don’t stop it?  (Economist)

LISTEN TO THE LOGS — Data scientists developed a way to listen to the rainforest and send out advance warnings of illegal logging. (Hitachi)

CLIMATE IMPERIALISM — Climate debt recognizes that the climate crisis is rooted in imperialism and colonialism. Watch to learn how the Global North can reckon with its legacy of destruction. (Our Changing Climate)

Climate science can be overwhelming. Here’s your easy-to-share highlight reel.
NOT TOO BIG TO FAIL

As the world transitions to net zero policies, those that continue to invest in fossil fuels will find their portfolio shrinking as soon as 2036.

NOT ADDING UP

How can we trust countries to meet their climate pledges when their own emissions reporting isn’t accurate to begin with? See how the data is being fudged.

REPUBLICAN REALITY

Republicans want us to take their latest climate plan seriously. But an analysis shows it doesn’t even come close to reaching its emission targets.

URBAN EXTREMES

Climate change is causing extreme weather throughout the globe and urban areas are getting hammered hard. See the reason why.

HOT BLOODED, CHECK THE DATA AND SEE

New reports show that the world is not on track to meet a 1.5 degrees of warming. Instead, we’re on track for a 2.7 degree increase. A major difference and a major problem.


The climate crisis in pictures. Our lens is global.

Last night I went down to support @gastivists with a projection on #COP26 venue, calling out greenwashing and demanding that fossil fuels are left in the ground. via @VickerstaffT

The Pacific Climate Warriors marching through the streets of Glasgow with their flags raised high for all the Pacific Islands who couldn’t make it to COP26. What a beautiful representation of our resilience... via @350Pacific

Aussies embarrassed by their government's climate inaction put up 3 giant billboards at #COP26 in Glasgow. #jokekeeper via @ARationalFear


Here’s what it looks like when people show up, voices ring loud and leaders act for the sake of the planet.
FINGER LAKES POINT TO THE FUTURE

Ithaca in upstate New York is actually building back better, starting with its buildings. It will be the first U.S. city to decarbonize all of them, saving 160,000 tons of carbon pollution.

TURNING THE DESERT GREEN

A Nigerian refugee camp in Cameroon is reaping the benefits after transforming its desert landscape into a lush, carbon-storing forest.

BLACK TO THE LAND

Abandoned lots are being turned into edible gardens in Detroit. And now a fund is helping black farmers purchase land, and rectifying years of racial discrimination at the same time.

ALL RISE, THE YOUTH ARE IN SESSION

Millennials and Gen Zs are now using climate litigation to address government inaction in fighting climate change.

PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR FUTURE IS

Just a decade ago, the cost of developing oil and gas projects was about the same as renewables. But not any more. The shift is rapidly accelerating divestment from fossil fuels.

ARTFRASTRUCTURE

Urban areas are the first to feel the effects of high temperatures, but a Boston-based group found an innovative way to beat the heat. See what they came up with.

GET INSPIRED BY THOSE WHO ASPIRED

Meet the Aspiration climate action grant recipients and learn more about how they’re saving the planet.


ALL COPPED OUT
Almost 200 nations accepted a compromise deal Saturday aimed at keeping a key global warming target alive. The pledge is progress but did not deliver on phasing out fossil fuels or helping developing nations pay for climate impacts. (New Scientist)
A LOOMING PRICE TAG
It’s time to stop asking “how much will it cost” to address climate change, and start asking “how much will it cost if we don’t?”
LIKE A BAD NEIGHBOR, EXXON IS THERE
Guyana was a champion of climate action. Then ExxonMobil discovered oil off its shores. See what followed.
“LIKE A WAR”
For many people, natural disasters only exist on the rectangle screen of their phones. For others, it’s very real, causing them to flee their homes after mass devastation.
BANKING ON DISTRACTION
Banks that finance oil companies continue to preach about the importance of tackling climate change while doing nothing to actually tackle climate change.
NOT DOING FINE, OKLAHOMA!
Oklahoma’s biggest natural gas utility could soon charge customers who switch to electric systems an exit fee of $1,400, punishing those who want to make the change.
THE BASIN BOMB
We need a 40% decline in global fossil fuel consumption to hit our climate goals. But oil production in just one part of the southwestern U.S. is already expected to increase by 50%.
IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT
A lot of us are feeling climate doom, and don’t know what to do about it. Climate change is a systemic problem.

Every week we highlight three climate campaigns having real impact. There are many more than 3, see many of them here.

Mothers Out Front is a grassroots mom-led effort to pressure political, business, and economic institutions to align their priorities and actions with the reality of climate change and its impacts.

The Climate Crisis Film Festival platforms stunning, diverse, and eye-opening cinema, providing a systemic perspective behind the raw human stories of climate change.

Clean Water Action Aid works to protect our environment, health, economic well-being and community quality of life. It also organizes strong grassroots groups and coalitions, and campaigns to elect environmental candidates and to solve environmental and community problems.
