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, this year’s film programme will be offered online. In 2022 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 – specifically Pilgrimage for COP26.

Screenings take place on the first Friday of each month at 7pm. As with all Take One Action 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. The post-film discussion will take place on Zoom – all links will be sent after booking via eventbrite (see below).
