CCEN / VISUAL Environmental Film Festival

Press Release – CCEN / VISUAL Environmental Film Festival

Introducing the CCEN / VISUAL Environmental Film Festival

Carlow County Environmental Network present their first Environmental Film festival in association with VISUAL Carlow.  Running on the third Wednesday of the month these free film nights will begin with ‘Home’ on the 19th of February at 7pm.

The County Carlow Environmental Network are delighted to announce their first (and hopefully annual) Environmental Film Festival at the VISUAL Carlow.  Over the course of four evenings spread over four months the aim of the festival is to inform and empower the Carlow community to act on environmental issues which affect us all.  

Running on the third Wednesday of the month from February to May, each evening will introduce a separate theme dealing with various aspects of current environmental issues.  The films have been carefully selected for their uplifting, solution- focused, and informative stories.  We begin with ‘Home’ on the 19th of February which introduces us to our planet from the air and gives an overview of some of the issues affecting it.  On the 18th of March River Blue shows us the impact of fast fashion following river advocate Mark Angelo as he paddles around some of the most beautiful- and polluted- rivers in the world.  On the 15th of April, just in time for Spring Clean Month our film is Closing the Loop which presents solutions to our waste problems.  On our final evening, May 20th we will show two films. A Drop in the Ocean is produced by Irish aid organisation Trocaire, and gives an Irish perspective of Climate Change.  The Race is On outlines some solutions to this globally and reminds us that the power is with us to change things. 

Entrance on the evenings is free.  Films are suitable for all ages and all are welcome. 

The VISUAL Carlow is wheelchair and buggy accessible.  There will be refreshments available on the night and prizes to be won.  Expected runtime is 7-9pm each night.  If coming as a group of more that 10 please contact us so that we can make accommodations for you in the theatre. 

The CCEN is a voluntary organisation that aims to empower the communities of Carlow town and county to take action in tackling current environmental issues through simple, positive actions.  We meet on the first Tuesday of every month at An Gairdín Beo in Carlow Town at 7pm.  New members are always welcome.

Polly Higgins – Stop Ecocide Become An Earth Protector

On April 22nd 2019 – Polly Higgins, one of the most inspiring figures in the green movement, died aged 50. For those who don’t know of Polly she dedicated her life to finding a way to create a legal duty of care for the Earth with the aim to impose a legal duty on governments to protect the public from dangerous industrial practices.

Right now, ecocide (destroying the Earth) is legally permitted.
Help us make it a crime.
There is nothing more powerful you can do with two minutes and a fiver. Visit www.stopecocide.earth/become to sign up.

WHAT IS ECOCIDE?
ECOCIDE is serious loss, damage or destruction of ecosystems, and includes climate and cultural damage.
We believe ECOCIDE should be recognised as an atrocity crime at the International Criminal Court – alongside Genocide, War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity. ~ www.stopecocide.earth/ecocide
