About the festival
Changing Climate, Changing Lives (CCCL) Film Festival is a platform for youth to tell stories about climate change through short films to empower and support young filmmakers to develop and hone their climate filmmaking skills to highlight climate change impacts on communities and innovative initiatives to fight climate change. Through the power of films showing the next generation’s perspectives who will have to live with the consequences of climate change, CCCL is a bridge that connects the voices of communities to the larger society and policymakers.
About I AM GRETA
The story of teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg is told through compelling, never-before-seen footage in this intimate documentary from Swedish director Nathan Grossman.
Starting with her one-person school strike for climate action outside the Swedish Parliament, Grossman follows Greta - a shy schoolgirl with Asperger’s – in her rise to prominence, and her galvanizing global impact as she sparks school strikes around the world. The film culminates with her astonishing wind powered voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to speak at the UN Climate Action Summit in New York City.
About Can You Hear Us?
Created by Exposure Labs and B Reel-Films, Can You Hear Us? is an impact campaign to accompany the release of the I Am Greta documentary on Hulu and amplify the climate movement. Produced by YEA! Impact with the support of a wide coalition of partners.
