What is Green Screen Ottawa?
Green Screen Ottawa is a climate change film series organized by local Ottawa residents, just like you!
With support from Ecology Ottawa, our goal is to engage our communities on climate action through a series of film screenings held across Ottawa to inspire local action on global issues and show that by working on climate change in our own backyard we can have an impact on one of the world’s most pressing issues.
All screenings are pay-what-you-can (PWYC) and aim to be accessible to everyone!

Green Screen & CCL present: Beyond Crisis film screening
Tuesday, September 25 @ 6:30pm – 8:30pm
1705 Orleans Blvd,
The Citizen’s Climate Lobby Ottawa and Green Screen Ottawa are co-hosting a free screening of “Beyond Crisis” at the Orleans branch of the Ottawa Public Library.
This is a film to get us talking about climate. Come for a free showing followed by a discussion. RSVP via Eventbrite is welcome to help us estimate numbers, but seating is first-come-first-served.
“BEYOND CRISIS is a story of hope for a rapidly changing world: a meditative call to action that explores what it means to be living in this new era of climate change, as told by over fifty diverse voices from across Canada, the U.S. and beyond.
The film is also a unique conversation piece: a grassroots model for what a healthy conversation on climate could look like, inspiring YOU to take the next steps in discussing these issues with your friends, community and loved ones.”
Thank you to everyone who has planned, organized, hosted and attended our events. All of this would not have been possible without your hard work and dedication!
