"Rousing stuff"  ★★★★

Just Do It lifts the lid on climate activism and the daring troublemakers who have crossed the line to become modern-day outlaws. Documented over a year, Emily James' film follows these activists as they blockade factories, attack coal power stations and glue themselves to the trading floors of international banks despite the very real threat of arrest.

"A smart, funny, adrenalised portrait of 21st century activism" Danny Leigh - The Guardian

Get Just Do It to a cinema near you!

There are a slate of cinemas already on board to show the film. Below is a list we’ve put together of additional key cinemas we want to secure along with contact information for their programmers (the people who decide which films to show). Please look for your local cinema and shoot the programmer a quick email, give them a call or better yet head over and ask to see the Programmer or General Manager. Also below is a template letter you can use to email these people. If you can’t find your local cinema on the list, give us a shout.

If your local cinema is a Vue or an Odeon (esp. if it’s a Vue) it is definitely worth heading over as they don’t make contact info available online.

Thanks so much for your help! Once you’ve reached out to the cinema please email, our Outreach Coordinator, Molly at msmollyjames@gmail.com to let us know how it went.

    Forget Odeon in Guildford. I would not go there. Far better venue in Guildford is the Electric Theatre which has a good track record for indie films.

    What about the Picture House in Hebden Bridge… You can get a mug of proper tea there! Xx

    The Star and Shadow is to cinema what you are to film… sort of. Volunteer run (no employees and no bosses).

    We’ll definitely programme Just Do It; all I need is a date and whatever press pack you can issue so we can get it in the programme and advertise it well. I’ve been looking forward to programming this for ages now…

    @Jack of Star and Shadow: Where are you based? You could garner new members by annoucing where you are based. I would be interested in coming along.
