A free festival of environmental film
The theme this year is Belief. Our beliefs are what we know to be true. What we know to be true guides our choices. Yet our beliefs about the environment have complex origins that complicate our responses to environmental crises. Environmental beliefs are shaped by experiences: at home, at work, at play. But they are also shaped by ideas – learned from religion and spiritual faith, from science, and even from popular culture like films. Tales 2015 will explore all these influences by which we arrive at our environmental beliefs and the ways our beliefs spur and sustain environmental action across the globe.
