Meet Steffen Krones on 16th Sept

Meet Visiting Filmmakers & Special Guests

We're very excited about all the guests traveling to Montrose for the festival from all corners of the globe to meet with you and share ideas. Among them is Steffen Krones, who'll be joining us from Dresden to discuss his eye-opening film The North Drift.

In the film, Steffen teams up with engineers, scientists, and his longtime friend Kris Jensen, an Inuit tour guide, to uncover the shocking journey of plastic pollution through the North Sea and towards the Arctic. See the film and meet Steffen in person on 16th Sept at the Montrose Playhouse. Discover, discuss, and make a difference.
