Rich Hobday is an actor, film producer, vegan and environmentalist. He has worked on major British film productions and TV shows, and is a film producer on many British feature films. With a passion for films, the environment and veganism, Rich wanted to create a new film festival which provided a platform for film makers, documentary makers, activists, and new community audiences, to come together to view and debate current films and documentaries. Sustainability On Screen is the only film festival of this type in the UK, and is an exciting addition to Portobello LIVE 2019.
The SOS Film Festival is a trailblazing event dedicated to celebrating a sustainable and vegan ideal: a healthier, compassionate, environmentally friendly lifestyle. Thought provoking and hard hitting screenings of short and feature films, showing the impacts of our diet, consumption and how we live is affecting the world and local communities we live in. We will be screening award winning films and documentaries and Q&As with leading film makers, environmentalists and musicians. Topics include climate change, waste pollution, vegan and plant based diet and environmental sustainability. We aim to explore how our every days lives are affecting climate change, pollution and the health of communities.
