18:45 - Discussion

Faced with a future that scientists say is a great cause for concern, Tomorrow has the distinction of not giving in to catastrophism. Optimistically, it identifies initiatives that have proven themselves in ten countries around the world: concrete examples of solutions to environmental and social challenges of the twenty-first century.

The film is organised in five chapters:
• Agriculture (food)
• Energy
• Economy
• Democracy
• Education

Unusually for a documentary film, Tomorrow exceeded a million entries in France. It won the 2016 César Award for Best Documentary Film and was distributed in 27 countries. The movie is cited by many French people as the trigger for a new kind of engagement in the course of the following years.

The film has been screened in several international circles (COP 21, European Parliament, UN...). More than 700 projects related to the initiatives described in the film were launched at the end of 2016. The film was screened at each school in Brussels, thanks to the Brussels Minister for the Environment. It received a rating of 8.1/10 on IMDb and 92% on Rotten Tomatoes.

The featured initiatives are taking place in these countries:
• Denmark
• Sweden
• Iceland

• Belgium
• France (including Réunion)
