What the **** happens during UN climate summits?
Who makes the decisions? Whose voices are excluded?
What’s at stake during COP26?
We are thrilled to be launching What the COP? – an exciting film initiative to help groups across Scotland explore climate issues in the lead-up to the UN Climate Conference being hosted in Glasgow in November. Throughout September and October, we’ll be supporting community groups of all shapes and sizes across Scotland to host screenings; explore key climate justice issues and find collective routes to action in November – and beyond.
We’ll be providing you with:
- access to screening licenses (and the films, of course!) for up to 4 specially-chosen documentaries (pay-what-you-can, based on the scale of your group/organisation);
- a helpful guide on how to plan and organise a film screening + conversation;
- marketing materials to help you promote your events;
- a bespoke learning resource & discussion guide for each film.
Keen to hold screenings in your community? Register your interest by 31 August.

This initiative is supported by Film Hub Scotland, part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network, and funded by Screen Scotland and National Lottery funding from the BFI
