Take One Action Film Festival is the UK’s leading global change film festival and they are coming to Aberdeen this weekend. The festival, which begins today, will take place in the Belmont Filmhouse and will last until Sunday.

 

The festival will feature films about social and environmental justice and there will be discussions held after the showings to celebrate the people and films changing the world. The conversations will be lead by the audience alongside journalists, filmmakers and academics to explore the issues of the films.

 

There are six films with different themes and content. Everything Must Fall is a documentary about the #FeesMustFall student movement in South Africa. The discussion afterwards will focus on access to free education, issues students in Aberdeen face will be discussed and there will be guest speakers from Africa in Motion. This film is being shown on Saturday at 15:15.

 

Another film being screened is Soyalism + Shorts. This documentary focusses on food production and how it is unsustainable and unethical. The film is being shown on Sunday at 15.10, however, the festival invites viewers to join them at the bar from 13.30 for a free buffet offered by Slow Food Aberdeen and for a discussion after the film about a more ecological and sustainable food system.

 

With many interesting films to watch, insightful discussions being held after the films and discounted ticket prices for students and under 25-year-olds, what better way to spend a cold and rainy weekend in Aberdeen?
