Halesworth's inaugural 'Big Green Film Day' attracted more than 200 visitors.

Hosted at The Cut arts centre, audiences were treated to a range of films looking at different aspects of the environment on Sunday, February 25. 

The featured films explored a variety of environmental topics, from the state of rivers to otters in Blythe and farming.

Guests indulged in live entertainment, food, and drinks, along with the chance to connect with environmental initiatives and groups.

The event also included a documentary about the state of our rivers, presented by journalist George Monbiot.

The lives of otters in the Blyth were also featured in short films, revealed through incredible footage from wildlife cameras, which were triggered by the animals themselves.

The event also showcased ‘The Biggest Little Farm,’ which details the journey of a couple striving against hardships to restore biodiversity to neglected farmland.

A musical performance by the Halesworth Harmony choir in response to the film didn't leave many dry eyes in the house, according to organisers.

The last film, Nettle Dress, a moving narrative about a textile artist who creates a dress from foraged nettles as a tribute to his late wife, was met with a full house.

The Big Green Film Day was one of a series of monthly events that will run throughout the year organised by Halesworth ASH (Area Sustainability Hub).

Witnessing the strong turnout, Suffolk County Councillor Annette Dunning said, "Halesworth Town Council has supported and encouraged Halesworth ASH to engage with the towns residents, who so naturally champion our local environment.

"As the local Suffolk County Councillor for Halesworth I am so encouraged to see such a thought provoking event draw such a large attendance, put together by those who really want to help sustain and improve their local area."

The next event, an illustrated talk about the future of plastics, is scheduled for March 14 at The Cut.
