Screenings: Planetary Health Film Lab
You are invited to attend a screening of seven short documentaries by emerging international filmmakers who came to Toronto to participate in the Planetary Health Film Lab. The Film Lab took these young filmmakers through an intensive five-day process to create a film which tells a story about the health impacts of climate change.
In addition to honouring the filmmakers, the screening is a starting point to discuss the use of documentary film for climate communication and advocacy, the future of global health storytelling and the health impacts of climate change.
The event will include a screening of all seven short documentaries before they are shared online and an open discussion with the filmmakers and organizers, who will all be in attendance.
This year’s cohort of youth are the workshop’s first. The group includes environmental activists and emerging filmmakers from Canada, Australia, Ecuador, Colombia, India and Italy.
