Cannes: Bertolucci, Wenders, Meirelles Back Climate Change Initiative (EXCLUSIVE)

Several of the world’s leading filmmakers have pledged their support to Film4Climate, an initiative to encourage the film and entertainment industry to take action on climate change.

Among those supporting the initiative are Bernardo Bertolucci, Wim Wenders, Fernando Meirelles, Walter Salles, Atom Egoyan, Bob Rafelson and Pablo Trapero. In a call to action, Bertolucci said: “There is no doubt the earth is in danger. I am looking forward to see testimonies about the climate changes.” Wenders added: “To combat climate change is one of the major tasks of our generation.”

Film4Climate is an initiative of the World Bank’s Connect4Climate program.

“It’s time for a global creative and influential alliance to tackle the climate crisis,” said Lucia Grenna, program manager for Connect4Climate.

Film4Climate will be presented at Cannes with events at the Doc Corner brunch and NEXT pavilion on May 18-19.
