A Climate Of Change (2014)

2

Director Ray Kocur leads you through a thorough (and accessible) study of current climate change research, speaking with a dozen of Canada's foremost climate scientists as well as historians and civil rights activists to gain perspectives on the past, present and future of our climate reality. Originally screened at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Conference of Parties 19, in Warsaw, Poland, this film has been re-cut for a general audience, placing an onus on personal accountability and drawing connections between ones health and the health of our world. Audiences will learn about atmospheric composition, sea level rise, carbon transfers in forest systems, extreme weather events, flooding, ground water contamination, the Alberta tar sands, Canadian environmental history, and how media shapes our perspectives.

Films For Action is a library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations, while 99% of our library is free to access and always will be. The pay-per-view films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patrons, we partner with filmmakers and distributors to provide free access to a growing number of films that are normally pay-per-view. With just 20 highly curated films at the moment, it's basically a very, very tiny Netflix for world changers, but its main function is to support the library as a whole.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker looking to collaborate, feel free to get in touch!

Cheers,  Tim Hjersted
