Flickers of the Future is a project working with young creatives to re-imagine how the future is portrayed on screen

We wanted to challenge the frequent on-screen portrayal of the future as a bleak place, and re-imagine it with hope. We don't believe that we should give up on our planet, and on trying to live more sustainably, and we want to see this hope - of a planet worth saving, and a future worth believing in- portrayed on screen.  


To do this, we created Flickers of the Future. Led by our patron Richard Curtis CBE and a host of incredible broadcast and environment experts, the project called out to young UK filmmakers and creatives to create a human story of a sustainable future.


Out of over 100 submissions, our five talented finalists emerged and Amy, Bethan, Georgia, Jack and Sophie are now working closely with a professional team of scriptwriters and TV production experts, getting ready to pitch to major broadcasters. Read more about their individual projects here.


They joined Flickers of the Future Patron Richard Curtis CBE at a webinar co-hosted by Global Action Plan and Royal Television Society where Richard introduced them to an audience of commissioners and broadcasters and they spoke about their concepts for the first time.
