Like just about every other event this year, the Raindance Film Festival – which kicks off next week, is happening online. There is a packed programme and the standout for us, we’re biased, is the panel show: My Big Green Cape: Tips from Everyday Climate Superheroes. Apart from the great title, one of the panelists is the award-winning author and filmmaker, Claudia Rinke, an expert contributor to Innovators Magazine.
Claudia is the creator and writer of the documentary NOW, which explores how young activists worldwide are inspiring social and political change. Innovators Magazine is a media partner with the documentary, which Claudia talked about in our recent Q&A.
“NOW is a documentary film about young environmental activists, most of them are climate activists,” Claudia said. “The film also features experts like Marc Buckley and Parag Khanna, and thought leaders like Nobel laureate Mohammad Yunus and the musician and author Patti Smith. It looks at the climate movement from different perspectives and gives unique and close insights into the lives and actions of the protagonists. It also portrays the movement as such and how it has grown within less than a year to a global force which will not go away any time soon.”
To find out more about NOW, as well as Claudia’s other work, and hear stories from her fellow climate superheroes, get a ticket for the panel event, which takes place on 1 November from 1-2pm.
