Take One Action nurtures the communal exploration of the stories, ideas and questions at the heart of positive social change. Through film screenings, conversation and enquiry, we bring people together to inspire a fairer, more sustainable and more fulfilling world, in Scotland and beyond our borders.

Established in 2008, Take One Action are an Edinburgh-based, independent charity founded by film lovers, cultural activists and globally concerned citizens who believe that shared cinematic experience can catalyse lasting change. Our annual programme of activities welcomes upwards of 5000 audience members each year and includes annual festivals in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness, a network of local film clubs and a series of individual screenings, talks and training opportunities.

Come, take part, and be inspired.

“Want to change the world but not sure where to start? This festival will rouse you into action.” The Guardian
