Greenbelt's 40 year history - THE MOVIE.

Help us Fund THE iconic film about Greenbelt's 40 year history.

'Great to hear Greenbelt are shooting a film to mark the 40th festival next summer. Can't wait to see it... my back feels as if I've camped at every one.'  Simon Mayo

A feature length documentary film that will honestly retell the highs and lows of the Greenbelt Festival story featuring rare archive footage and photography, music from across the 4 decades and voices past and present . It will reveal it's humble beginnings in a field in Suffolk in 1974 and weave around it's long and varied history and how Greenbelt has grappled with the intertwining of Arts, Faith and Justice.The film however is not just about the past, with the 40th festival theme of "Life Begins" the film will look toward the future.
The overall budget for the film is much higher than the target set here, we are hoping to exceed that considerably in an effort to make the very best film.
Of course the great news is we're not just asking for your money, we ARE GIVING YOU something back so please find the right PERK for you.
When the film is made available at Greenbelt 2013 it will help raise valuable funds for the festival's future.

"Greenbelt are delighted to be working in partnership with Blue Hippo Media on the production of its 40th Anniversary Film Documentary. Not only do Blue Hippo know the festival and its history, their work epitomises the creative spirit at work in the Greenbelt journey over all these years – in films like the award-winning "The Insatiable Moon" and, more recently, "Last Shop Standing", their critically acclaimed documentary charting the Rise Fall and Rebirth of the independent Record Shop in the UK. Please support the film by choosing a perk today"
