Take One Action nurtures communal exploration of the stories, ideas and questions at the heart of positive social change. Join us online from 16-27 September 2020.
2020 has been a tumultuous yearâ€¦ but weâ€™re pleased to be able to provide a tiny wee bit of stability: Take One Actionâ€™s annual film festival returns from 16-27 September. Taking place ONLINE for the first time in its history, the UKâ€™s leading global change film festival offers 12 days of the most inspiring, challenging and urgent international cinema exploring social and environmental justice â€“ all available from a sofa (very) near you.
All films are accessible from anywhere in the UK. Films can be booked on a â€œpay-what-you-canâ€ basis, while all live Q&As and workshops are free to attend. Check out the full programme the Take One Action website.
Our raison dâ€™Ãªtre is to bring people together to encourage communal exploration of the stories, ideas and questions at the heart of positive social change. Though current circumstances mean that the communal spirit of our events will need to be summoned differently, we look forward to re-connecting with audiences across Scotland â€“ and beyond â€“ this September. Weâ€™re committed to responding to audiencesâ€™ appetite for challenging conversations â€“ and to sparking people on their journey into action.
Our Shared Planet strand includes films that interrogate current environmental realities from a climate justice perspective:
Choose â€˜Shared Planetâ€™ from the â€˜Festival Strandâ€™ on the TOAFF website.
Weâ€™re delighted to be welcoming inspiring campaigners to the free, live Q&As and workshop that complement our film programme â€“ and hope youâ€™ll be able to join us.

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.
In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.
We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.
Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:
Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the publicâ€™s emotions, values and ideas.
