Watch the trailers and vote for your favourite film.

A Delicate Balance A Delicate Balance documents the latest discoveries of some of the most prominent experts on nutrition in the world. With a focus on health and theramifications on the environment over 50 years of research is skilfully woven into what feels like a detective unravelling the mysteries behind the disease epidemic which has struck affluent countries with a vengeance - disease has been escalating over the last 50 years resulting in 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women being diagnosed with cancer.

Food Matters Food Matters discusses the importance of Nutrition & Natural Therapies for preventing and reversing chronic illness. The film shows which foods and therapies are ideal for optimal health and have been proven to help with Heart Disease, Diabetes, Depression, Cancer and many more Chronic Illnesses and everyday conditions.

End of The Line The world’s first major documentary about the devastating effect of overfishing premiered at Sundance Film Festival. Imagine an ocean without fish. Imagine the global consequences. This is the future if we do not stop, think and act.

The Age of Stupid - "We could have saved ourselves, but we didn’t. It’s amazing. What state of mind were we in, to face extinction and simply shrug it off?” Climate change and present apathy viewed from the future. - A tight squeeze on your reproductive organs to widen your eyes to the plight of the planet.

 Meat The Truth The documentary Meat the Truth is the first major project undertaken by the Nicolaas G. Pierson Foundation, presented by Marianne Thieme (leader of the Party for the Animals)Meat the Truth has drawn attention to the role of Meat in climate change by demonstrating that livestock farming generates more greenhouse gas emissions worldwide than all cars, lorries, trains, boats and planes added together.

Earthlings - EARTHLINGS is an award-winning documentary film about the suffering of animals for food, fashion, pets, entertainment and medical research. Considered the most persuasive documentary ever made, it reminds people that animals are earthlings too and our many crimes against them are unforgiveable.

You decide which of these films you would like to watch on a big screen for just £3
