Film screening: The Bentley Effect - Kirkintilloch

With the fight against fracking and unconventional gas in Scotland at a critical stage this year, we invite you to these special screenings to learn first hand how communities can protect themselves against unwanted unconventional gas development.

The Bentley Effect documents the extraordinary tale of a community that defied the unconventional gas juggernaut - and won.

When the coal seam gas industry staked a claim on the Northern Rivers shire of Australia, alarm bells rang out. A critical mass of people from all walks of life – farmers, landowners, mums, dads, activists, scientists – organised themselves to rally against the unconventional gas invasion. Despite the enormous public opposition, the gas industry and the State Government were determined to see their gas plan through. What happened next set an historic precedent.

Join Brendan Shoebridge, Simon Clough and Ian Gaillard who each played an important part in the Bentley Effect story as they take their documentary around Scotland as part of the Bentley Effect 2017 UK Tour.

These events are FREE, though donations towards venue costs would be much appreciated.
