The award-winning eco documentary Drying For Freedom will be screened as part of the unique Environmental Evening at the Purbeck Film Festival on 25th October at Durlston Castle.
The evening is supported by The Co-operative and PEAT and aims to raise environmental awareness. The award-winning eco film GASLAND will be shown alongside DRYING FOR FREEDOM at the event with an open discussion afterwards on the issues that the films raise.
The Purbeck Film Festival is the longest running rural film festival in the UK and is now in its 15th year. Each year the Festival makes a selection of the films that we think our audience will like, and gives about 100 performances in the last two weeks of October at venues throughout the Purbeck including many at unusual venues.
Durlston Castle is the setting for this unique environmental evening which will see two films screened. GASLAND is a film about Fracking, giving the viewer the opportunity to learn more about this method of extracting gas from shale and the effect it may be having on the environment and on our future. It is the perfect partner to DRYING FOR FREEDOM which explores the future demand of energy through the clothesline. Filmmaker Steven Lake is from the Isle of Purbeck and was a projectionist at the Wareham Rex Cinema, the local cinema in the area. Steven will attend the screening and be part of the debate exploring issues of energy and how we can all change something to improve the planet’s environment.
Tickets for the event can be purchased at Durlston Castle or Swanage Tourist Information Centre. For more information please visit http://www.purbeckfilm.com.← BackNext →
