Tales from Planet Earth

Stockholm 9-12 April 2014

Using film screenings as a central focus for discussion and workshops, we want to raise issues on narrative in science communication, film as a way of both spreading and creating knowledge, and the intersections between research, film making, policy making, and activism. Organised around the themes of Waste, Energy, the Circumpolar North and Environmental Justice, the festival will combine film screenings in the evenings with workshops, lectures and discussion panels during the afternoons.

The festival is arranged by the KTH Environmental Humanities Laboratory in cooperation with the European Network of Political Ecology (Entitle).


The seminars will gather speakers and participants from different fields to discuss the role of film in research, education, communication and activism around environmental issues.


In addition to films, the festival will include workshops, seminars and other forums for discussion.
