The mission of the Climate Action Film Festival is to bring together stories and filmmakers from around the globe to address the climate crisis.
The first annual Climate Action Film Festival is a celebration of short films with a focus on solutions to the climate crisis. It is the first festival of its kind to exclusively feature storytelling around solutions rather than simply the impacts of climate change. CAFF 2020 will be a touring, single-night event featuring approximately 90 minutes of short films. The festival will tour the Northeast U.S. in its inaugural year, with additional screenings to be added. Proceeds from screenings will be donated to local climate action groups.
Raise your voice in the name of climate action!
Created by Storytellers, for Storytellers.
CAFF is proudly created by SunCommon, a Certified B Corporation providing a market solution to climate change through affordable home and commercial solar in Vermont and New York’s Hudson Valley. SunCommon has long relied on the power of storytelling to inspire, inform, and relate to one another, and to bring more and more people into the solar movement. Stories have a unique ability to spark change in the face of existential threats, but we also know we can’t do it alone.
Solutions to the climate crisis are being implemented every day around the world, from rebuilding coastal estuaries to bringing solar power to remote communities. We don’t wish to ignore the large-scale solutions that must be sought through policy and governmental resourcing. But we believe in the importance of lifting up everyone playing a part in restoring balance to our planet— the engineers, scientists, builders, thought leaders, and activists who are chipping away every day at this monumental challenge.
CAFF is a new platform to celebrate these efforts and inspire greater action.
