There are reasons to be cheerful, TTT Film Nights have transformed into a full-blown Transition Film Festival in Totnes.
For five years TTT Film Nights film nights have brought people together to watch, while being intrigued and engaged in some of the issues facing the world. Such has been their success, they’ve grown into the town’s Transition Film Festival.
The Transition Film Festival programme will be focused on key Transition themes including climate change, local economies and declining resources, with an upbeat look at the range of solutions available to us with regard to food, economy and community spirit. Hence the subtitle, ‘reasons to be cheerful’.
On offer will be a diverse line-up of films for all ages and understanding of what Transition is about.
There will be a range of workshops with local film makers, children’s matinees and film discussions with directors.
The festival gets underway with a splash, so to speak with, screenings of Forever Flowing, Words for the Edge and Easy Like Water exploring our relationship with water. The three films will be shown together on Friday, November 14 from 8pm.
Also included in the TT film fest Totnes will be a community filmmaking workshop with Emilio Mula, Malcolm Baldwin and Bryony Stokes, which poses the question “In a world of ‘reality tv’, how do you ensure the stories you tell are authentic and give a true tale?”
And there’s a film premiere in the form of Arise. Narrated by actress and environmental activist Daryl Hannah, Arise ‘captures the portraits and stories of extraordinary women around the world who are coming together to heal the injustices against the earth, weaves together poetry, music, art and stunning scenery to create a hopeful and collective story that inspires us to work for the earth’.
Plus, there’s an exciting Late Night Film Jam, where you can bring your own films.
The Transition Film Festival in Totnes runs from Friday, November 14 to Sunday, November 16, 2014.
