our story

The CCFF was started in the summer of 2019 by three 26 year old friends wanting to contribute to what at the time felt like London’s climate awakening.

We felt like existing environmental film festivals across the world were too broad in their scope to tackle climate change head-on and that there was space for a film festival that was laser-focused on the climate crisis and which dissected it through a social, political and economic lens — that is, from an intersectional angle.

We felt a great excitement for what we saw as a ‘new wave of environmentalism’ — at the time we didn’t have the perfect words to describe it, but 3 years on, intersectional environmentalism is on the rise and we’re proud to have been a champion of the concept from the get-go.
