Film Access Scotland has launched a climate Film Challenge in Scotland to draw focus on climate crisis.
We are calling out to people based anywhere in Scotland to submit 90-second films to express reactions and reflections on how climate change is affecting us as individuals, our surroundings, families and communities.
Regardless of background, age or filmmaking experience, anyone can submit a film to the challenge, with resources available online to help people get started.
The first deadline for film submissions is midnight on 24th October 2021.
The final deadline is midnight on 24th November 2021.
A selection of filmmakers based in Scotland that meet the first submissions deadline will be invited to screen their work at the New York Times Climate Hub Open House on 7th November 2021.
As part of the project Film Access Scotland is running free online workshops, which is a great opportunity for professional development and training of staff members or volunteers. These are delivered in collaboration with organisations across Scotland.

The post Opportunity: 1.5Â° Films â€“ 90-second climate film challenge appeared first on Creative Carbon Scotland.
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.
