The UK Green Film Festival (UKGFF) is heading to Manchester for the first time thanks to igloo Regeneration and a team of collaborators, allowing the people of Manchester to experience the national film festival themselves.
The nationwide festival, which was co-founded by igloo Regeneration, is now in its 8th year and will be arriving at HOME Manchester with Austrian film, The Green Lie.
The mission of the UK Green Film Festival is to enable as many people nationwide to be able to watch the most current, vital and very best of today’s environmental films. The festival currently operates throughout 14 UK cities, including London, Glasgow and Leeds.
Founding partner of UKGFF igloo Regeneration has its HQ on Tib Street in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, with a team of 35 development professionals operating on a variety of strategic projects across the UK.
To mark the event, igloo Regeneration also hosted a preview event showing of the well-known film Serengeti Rules.
David Roberts, director at igloo comments: “At igloo we challenge ourselves to meet the climate emergency head on – building Planet Positive Places. It is our mission to go beyond the buildings, the hardware, to create the software, the activities and relationships, and ultimately the social capital that builds communities and supports wellbeing. Collective thinking is vital to this most challenging and urgent of issues and our continued support for the UK Green Film Festival is one way we can share learning from the best innovators on the planet.”
The general public can attend the showing of The Green Lie at HOME on Saturday 9 Nov 2019 at 15.30.
