Transition Town Totnes Film Festival

TTTFF20: our next festival will be in Spring 2020 – again in partnership with the Barn Cinema in Dartington and our own local venue, Totnes Cinema. Transition Town Totnes Film Festivals show films on a range of important issues – including climate change, food production, declining resources and the value of community.  We also address key challenges of our time such as refugees, global exploitation, social exclusion/justice, and women’s empowerment. We seek to present films which provide hope, inspiration and imaginative solutions whilst not avoiding the stark realities we are currently facing. Unlike most film festivals we do not just show recent releases but rather present stimulating films which have not been commercially distributed. Many sessions offer time for discussions, often with the film-makers themselves and relevant speakers.  There are also film-making workshops over the weekend for both children and adults.
