Masterclass in film making and activism

“Climate change isn’t a wonkish or academic issue; it’s a racial and social justice issue.”
Academy Award-nominated documentary filmmaker Josh Fox is continuing his impassioned call to action against the ravages of climate change with his latest feature documentary, How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change.

Josh is currently taking the film on tour to 100 locations in the U.S. and across the world in order to engage local people in the importance of protecting their lives and land from the encroaching gas industry.

We are delighted to welcome him to Edinburgh where he will be giving a special masterclass on filmmaking and activism.

Come and get inspired! This masterclass is free and open to all.


How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change will be screening on the same day (17th October) at the Odeon Wester Hailes at 6pm. Book your ticket / Student discount available.
