SDGFilmfest was founded in March 2018
The project was developed in response to a funding call from UKRI (Research and Innovation), to explore the UN sustainable development goals. The festival aims to maximise the impact of research and innovation to improve lives and opportunity in the developing world.
Participants recognised the sheer scope and importance of global challenges such as equality, the environment, human and civil rights, and the need to raise awareness of these issues within Developing Nations and the West to facilitate their achievement.
SDGFilmfest was established under the Global Challenges Research Fund and now operates through investment from our community partners. As the project grows, the film festival will expand to cover additional territories as part of its wider mission and reach.
