Social justice films get into the fast lane
By ALISON BENJAMIN
Bideford Sustainability Group in Devon was formed last week following a screening at the local Baptist church of the climate change film, The Age of Stupid. The organisers of Good Screenings, a new distribution channel for social action films, launched today, hope it will lead to more public screenings of low-budget social justice films and a growth of campaigning groups on the back of the issues raised.
“Schools, churches, voluntary groups and associations will all be able to use the screenings as a vehicle to raise both awareness and funds,” says Franny Armstrong, director of The Age of Stupid and the driving force behind Good Screenings.
