Beyond the World of Oil – short film screening


Summerhall, Edinburgh

Join us for two short films, Offshore and The Future's Not F*cked, exploring the world of oil and what’s beyond it from the perspective of those who work in it and those who live in a city shaped by it.

As the climate crisis intensifies, it becomes ever more urgent that we transition away from fossil fuels. A just transition requires frontline workers and communities to have a meaningful role in shaping what that looks like, but this is lacking from almost all current planning for the shift away from oil. These two documentaries are a small contribution to this conversation.
