This year’s programme is brimming with stories of solidarity, perseverance and defiance.
The UK’s leading global change film festival returns for its 12th edition, with a diverse line-up celebrating our common humanity and our power – individual and collective – to bring about a kinder, fairer, more sustainable world.
The organisers have been working hard to make the screenings more accessible and are operating a ticket sliding scale for all the CCA screenings, which means people can decide for themselves (without any burden of proof) how much – if anything – they are able to pay for tickets.
They are also operating a Community Ticket Fund for screenings in cinema venues, to make tickets accessible for free to groups supporting people who routinely experience barriers to access (the fund includes support for travel and childcare costs).
In addition, the organisers have arranged for a large proportion of the screenings to be fully captioned for D/deaf and hard-of-hearing audiences , with BSL interpretation offered at several screenings. The closing film, Ken Loach’s ‘Sorry We Missed You’, will also have audio description.
