One planet film club
We believe in the power of film for raising awareness and creating positive change and therefore we decided to start a film club. We will regularly be updating this page with new films and documentaries that can be watched for free, with no subscriptions or payments required, so everyone can get involved. The films we choose will be those that we feel have inspiring messages with real impact.
