Bringing the best green documentaries to audiences across the country.

How do we build the city of tomorrow? How do powerful systems actually change? Should we be looking at our houseplants a little differently..? In pursuit of a better future, the five feature documentaries in this year’s UK Green Film Festival programme uncover answers and accountability in the grandest ideas and the smallest details, from forests on rooftops to the deepest depths of our oceans.

We have selected 3 films from this year’s Green Film Festival to screen here in Canterbury:

Sun 23 Jun, Plastic Fantastic – Isa Willinger’s timely Plastic Fantastic follows scientists, activists and industry lobbyists to find out where the plastics crisis is leading us.

Wed 26 Jun, Holy Shit – Rubén Abruña embarks on an entertaining and enlightening adventure across the globe to investigate whether faeces should be regarded as a resource and not as waste.

Fri 28 Jun, Deep Rising – Jason Momoa narrates Deep Rising a dazzling deep-sea tale of geopolitical, scientific, and corporate intrigue.


ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
