Before The Flood is a riveting account of the dramatic changes now occurring around the world due to climate change, as well as the actions we as individuals and as a society can take to prevent catastrophic disruption of life on our planet. The film follows DiCaprio as he travels to five continents and the Arctic speaking to scientists, world leaders, activists and local residents to gain a deeper understanding of this complex issue and investigate concrete solutions to the most pressing environmental challenge of our time.

Fisher Stevens, director says: “We can no longer turn a blind eye to the issue of climate change; we are at a crucial moment where if we don’t act now, we will forever pay the price. I’m looking forward to sharing Before The Flood with the BFI London Film Festival this October. London is one of the greatest cities in the world and my hope is that this film provides a global wakeup call about our inevitable fate should we fail to act.”

Clare Stewart, Director BFI London Film Festival, says: “We are thrilled to be presenting the European premiere of Before The Flood, a film that is both an urgent and illuminating update on climate change and a passionate clarion call from Leonardo DiCaprio and Fisher Stevens.” 

The 60th BFI London Film Festival in takes place from Wednesday 5 October to Sunday 16 October 2016.
