Our film screenings aim to inform and inspire - a different way of looking at our lives and the world around us. How can we better share the planet's resources so that we can all feel nourished and live in harmony?
After the films we invite lively discussions and an exchange of personal views or experiences.
Wide ranging topics include: environmental issues (human health, wildlife, carbon footprint, resources), governance, corporations, individual choices/actions, architecture and urban planning. Please scroll down for a list of films previously screened.

Our Background: Green Screen was started in January 2014 by two Ham residents who approached HUG to help support their idea. We were delighted to do so. Ewa and Michal have since returned to Poland with their two girls, but left us the richer and a good legacy. Their work was continued by Danielle Coleman, Jean Loveland and Jill Lamb. At the end of 2015 and throughout 2016 local resident Sufiyo Andersson kindly organised everything single-handedly! She continues to support the current organisers Simon Bailey and Daija Angeli, who both live in the borough and share a passion for environmental issues. We are also grateful to David Metherell for support. Please do get in touch if you would like to be involved yourself. We are all volunteers and welcome help.
Are you a film fan? Then check out the Twickenham Cinema Club and Richmond Film Society which between them screen three films each month at The Exchange opposite Twickenham railway station. The Exchange is a new community facility comprising an auditorium for 300 people, six multi-purpose studio rooms, a café and atrium area.
