[LISTEN] Nature Diary: All eyes on the Eco Film Festival

With shows like ‘A Plastic Ocean’ and ‘the Future of Energy’, the Eco Film Festival is a must for those of you who care about the future of this planet.

Festival director Erica Schofield says that they are very fortunate to have a wide range of topics but their main theme is around the environment reaching a disaster point.

What we also try do is have a speaker after every film because a lot of the time our audience do want to have a conversation.

Film directors will share their experiences of what they learnt while filming and what’s happened after says Schofield.

By 2020 apparently 75% of the world’s population will be living in the cities.
