Seeing is belonging. Take One Action celebrates 10 years of championing the people and the movies that are changing the world. Join us for 12 days of the most acclaimed international cinema about global social change. As our media and social worlds splinter into ever-more isolated fragments, we approach our role as sharers of stories with care and determination.

Our 10th anniversary programme is brimming with urgent, impassioned films that reflect our steadfast belief that a kinder, fairer and more sustainable world is possible. By connecting you with voices and experiences that too often remain unheard, our screenings, conversations and events invite you to create this world right here, right now.
