Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff is one of five venues in the UK hosting the inaugural UK Green Film Festival, showcasing environmentally themed films and similarly-minded film makers.

The festival, which is also launching in Leeds, Leicester, London and Glasgow, starts this Friday, 20 May, and runs across the weekend, finishing on Sunday 22 May.

There's a range of films on offer in Cardiff - some of which will be premières, some will feature guest directors and guest introductions plus there'll also be environmentally friendly activities at the centre.

Films that will be shown over the weekend include the UK première of PLANEAT - story of three men's search for a diet which is good for our health, the environment and the future of our planet; 1950s classic Godzilla (apparently it's greenthemed-with-hindsight), and a free screening of Home, the feature directorial début of French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand.

As the film festival website says: "We're not here to preach. We're here to challenge, inspire, educate, learn and entertain." Either way, it's a good opportunity to catch a few unexpected cinematic treats with the serious issues of climate change and the environment at their core.

There's more info on the UK Green Film Festival website and Facebook page, plus see exactly what Chapter has in store on their website.
