Green Screen


Our sustainability themed film club ran successfully for several years, showing a variety of inspiring and concerning documentaries (scroll down for list and links). We enjoyed round-circle discussions after each screening, to reflect on the film’s content and consider ways forward. Now our time and energy is focused on new ventures which HUG’s directors feel can have a greater tangible impact on sustainability in our local community. We're still planning to show films in the future when this fits with the work we're doing, and Green Screen's webpage will be updated from time to time with free films to watch from the comfort of your own home. Thank you for your support over the years.

History of Green Screen 

Green Screen was a non-political film group, open to all. Our film screenings aimed to inform and inspire - a different way of looking at our lives and the world around us. We showed films on a wide range of topics, including environmental issues (human health, wildlife, carbon footprint, resources), governance, corporations, individual choices/actions, architecture and urban planning. 

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! For the last couple of years, Simon Bailey and Daija Angeli, who both live in the borough and share a passion for environmental issues, organised screenings.
