Film Screening Options

Do you want to host a community film screening for Great Big Green Week? Here are some suggestions:

Saving Our Wild Isles

Sir David Attenborough tells a story of hope in a time of crisis for UK nature in Saving Our Wild Isles: a documentary that came to BBC iPlayer in Spring 2023. Commissioned by WWF, the RSPB and the National Trust, and produced by Silverback Films, the documentary was inspired by the Wild Isles series and shares stories of passionate people across the UK who are working to bring nature back from the brink.

If you’re thinking of hosting a screening of Saving Our Wild Isles, WWF has all of the information and resources to help you.


The Migration Blanket – Climate Solidarity film

Climate change continues to displace communities and disrupt the global economy. The Migration Blanket – Climate Solidarity  film shows how women’s lives are being affected. The art movie is also a show of solidarity between girls and women in the UK and  Commonwealth countries, calling for a greener planet where nobody is left behind and an end to violence against women. Described by politicians and media as a ‘powerful film’ the short features over 400 pieces of unique artwork created during the pandemic in extraordinary circumstances. This film shaped conversations on gender equality at Cop28 and spurred numerous campaigns on this issue following its release.

Refugee, migrant and marginalised women living in camps, orphanages and other temporary accommodation are given a voice and present their concerns, as do migrant and refugee women from the UK, who worked closely with award-winning British Filmmaker and campaigner, Salma Zulfiqar BEM.

Audiences will benefit from watching this film as they will learn why we need to take collective action in our communities and how they could be affected in the future.

Bank Swapping workshops with Switch It Green

83% of people don’t realise that their banks are pouring billions into harmful industries every year, including funding new fossil fuels and deforestation.

Switch It Green is a climate action campaign working to stop banks from funding climate-wrecking industries. The team runs engaging educational workshops to bridge this awareness gap when it comes to the links between banks and climate breakdown and has mobilised thousands of people to swap their bank for a greener alternative on the Green Banking Platform. Every 10 people who swap their bank account means over £10 million moved out of potential fossil fuel support!

The interactive workshops cover everything from diving into how bank switching is a key part of the solution, taking a look at some of the projects banks are investing in behind our backs, answering your community’s bank swapping questions, and exploring how to chat to others about the world of green banking.

If you’d like the team to run a workshop for your group, community or local Green Week during Great Big Green Week, get in touch with to find out more!
