Film Screenings

Our first series of screenings are a collaboration with Take One Action Locals. They’re supported by XR Edinburgh and Central Edinburgh Quaker Meeting.

With COVID-19 social distancing in mind, our first two screenings will be offered online. After that we hope to move to in-person screenings at the Cathedral.

Programmed for general interest, some of the documentaries also shed light on previous COP negotiations, thus complementing other aspects of A+E’s engagement for COP26.

Dates for the first two screenings are now confirmed. Later screenings will likely follow the same pattern i.e. the first Friday of each month at 7pm. As with all Take One Action Locals events, each screening will be followed by a short discussion for those who would like to share thoughts about the film and actions they may wish to take. In the case of the first two screenings, the post-film discussion will take place on Zoom.
