Event: TPFF at Greenbelt 2013

Tipping Point’s Programme – 24,25,26 August

“Greenbelt ranks alongside Glastonbury as my favourite festival gig of the summer.”  Mark Thomas.

TPFF looks forward to another bank holiday Greenbelt festival – and a special one as Greenbelt celebrates its 40thBirthday!

And our three day programme stays with the ‘anniversary’ theme as 50 years on, we mark Martin Luther King’s ‘I have a dream’ speech through the beautifully told story of his fellow civil rights friend and activist, the extra-ordinary Harry Belafonte; we preview TPFF supported film by Amir Amirani ‘We Are Many’ – a film marking  the 10th anniversary of the 2003 global anti-Iraq war marches; and eight years on from Make Poverty History,  we look at the tax campaign related outcomes of the recent G8 meeting as we screen the highly popular ‘We’re Not Broke’ – a film about corporates, tax avoidance and citizens.

We’ll be there Saturday, Sunday and Monday – 2pm-4.30pm at the film venue.  Each screening is followed by post film discussion with specially invited guests…

We look forward to seeing you there!
