CLWSTWR, RIFA & CAF PRESENT: 
ANIMATION AND THE CLIMATE EMERGENCY

Clwstwr and Cardiff Animation Festival are joining forces with the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s (AHRC) Research in Film Awards (RIFA) for an afternoon of screenings, talks and networking on environmental sustainability in the media industry. 

 

The sessions are an opportunity to be inspired by content and films which are already raising awareness and advocating for change, as well as participate in discussions about ways in which the climate emergency can be communicated to different audiences using animation.  

 

From animators to content commissioners, academic researchers to production researchers – we'd love to welcome you along for an afternoon of change making thinking.

The Promise (7 mins)

This film follows a young girl who introduces nature to her city and discovers how, to rewild the world, she must first rewild herself.

 

The above films will be followed by a Q&A with the animator and illustrator of A Stork’s Journey Karrie Fransman, and the writer of The Promise the New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year, Nicola Davies, from which the film is adapted, hosted by Clwstwr Producer Greg Mothersdale.
