Ape Alliance and the Great Apes Film Initiative at the Bristol Festival of Nature

Ape Alliance and the Great Apes Film Initiative will be raising funds for GAFI Pedal Power Cinema Screenings in Uganda at the Bristol Festival of Nature.

Come and see our team dressed as gorillas and oranguatns riding electric scooters at the Festival at Bristol Harbourside all weekend. Free entry and fun for all the family

GAFI aims to raise awareness and increase understanding of apes and their environment with the inherent need for their conservation throughout their range, by enabling as many people as possible to watch documentaries about them and their behaviour. In this way, the populations of these countries will become more engaged in primate conservation to enhance their long-term survival prospects.

So far the screenings have been made possible by travelling throughout regions via 4x4 vehicles, riverboats or mobile vans. However, GAFI is looking for ways to create the opportunity to have screenings in a carbon neutral and sustainable way. This has led to the development of a field version of a pedal powered cinema system which enables the screening of films via power generated by a cyclist pedalling an adapted bicycle.

Come and support this innovative new project.
