Take One Action Film Festival returns to Edinburgh and Glasgow with a selection of the most acclaimed films of the year about the big issues of our time, from climate change to workers’ rights and the rising cost of education. Highlights include the UK Premiere of Eva Longoria’s Food Chains; Oscar-winner Danis Tanovic’s inspirational Pakistan drama Tigers; the festival’s preview of The Divide based on the best-seller about social inequality The Spirit Level; Stories of our lives, a powerhouse of LGBT shorts from Kenya and Landfill Harmonic, the amazing true story of the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura.

All screenings include simple, voluntary opportunities for audiences to connect and share ideas and opinions for creative and effective personal action with thousands of fellow inspiration-seekers as well as leading campaigners, journalists, filmmakers and politicians. Guests include Bahraini human rights activist Maryam al-Khawaja, award-winning journalist Joanna Blythman, Scottish poet and writer Liz Lochhead, Alvin Mosioma (director of Tax Justice Network Africa), Radical Independence campaigner Cat Boyd and writer and land rights expert Andy Wightman. Film directors Katharine Round (The Divide) Camilla Nielsson (Democrats) and Ryley Grunenwald (The Shore Break) will also be in attendance. The programme includes also workshops, opportunities and special events.
