  • THE OIL MACHINE at Southsea Green Film Festival

    Sunday, 26 May 2024 at 3:00 PM · £7.50 GBP · Southsea Community Cinema & Arts Centre in Southsea, Portsmouth, United Kingdom (Google Maps)


    From the discovery of huge oil fields off the coast of Scotland to their mass privatisation during the Thatcher era, The Oil Machine highlights how oil became the invisible engine driving UK economic and public policy. In the wake of COP26 in Glasgow, demand for climate action has become a key societal concern and the pressure on both oil companies and the government continues to mount. Bringing together a wide range of voices, from industry executives and economists to young activists, Davie offers a visceral and thought-provoking interrogation into how this insidious machine might be dismantled.

  • THE OIL MACHINE at IDFA Institute, Amsterdam

    Wednesday, 15 May 2024 at 8:30 PM · €12.00 EUR · Het Documentaire Paviljoen: De Spiegel in Amsterdam, Netherlands (Google Maps)


    The time when we described it as “liquid gold” may be over, but our economic, historical and even emotional connection to oil is still very much intact. Oil is in everything from the products in our kitchen cupboards to our pension funds. We are deeply dependent on oil. Let’s just admit it: we’re addicts.

    This urgent film examines, from a range of perspectives, an industry that has crept into every pore of our society. But this must change: this polluting machine is causing sea levels to rise irrevocably. Directors of oil companies, economists and young activists all have their say about the conflicting interests around oil. Meanwhile, drilling permits are still being issued, despite the agreements made through the Paris Climate Accords.

    While the focus is on the economy of the UK and its oil fields in the North Sea, all of us—politician, industrialist and consumer alike—will think twice after seeing this film and ask ourselves how to turn the tide. And how quickly?

  • Beyond the Film: How Will Scotland Deal with ‘The Oil Machine’?

    Tuesday, 07 May 2024 at 7:00 PM · Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh, United Kingdom (Google Maps)


    Join us for an Exclusive Evening of Insightful Discussion and High-Level Networking

    The dramatic resignation of Scotland's First Minister, following the dissolution of the Bute House agreement and the controversy over abandoning key climate commitments, underscores the profound impact of climate policy on political stability. As Sir David King, former UK Chief Scientific Advisor, cautions in the film THE OIL MACHINE, "what we do in the next five years will determine the future of humanity for the next millennium." This urgent call to action echoes louder amid current political upheavals and sets the stage for our panel discussion on the pressing question 'How Will Scotland Deal with The Oil Machine?'. Our experts will explore Scotland's urgent need for effective strategies to counter emissions and discuss how today's policy decisions shape tomorrow's reality.

    Celebrate with us the remarkable journey of THE OIL MACHINE, an award-winning Scottish documentary that has ignited crucial conversations globally. Over the last 18 months, this film has not only examined Scotland's complex relationship with North Sea oil and gas but has also spearheaded a successful impact campaign, resonating across the UK and beyond. Independently produced and co-funded by BBC Scotland and Screen Scotland, this critically acclaimed documentary has catalysed discussions at over 200 events in the UK and has been showcased in 14 other countries worldwide, including a special speaker tour across the USA and Norway.

    THE OIL MACHINE, directed by Emma Davie, uniquely brings together diverse voices — from oil executives to financiers to climate activists — creating a multi-stakeholder narrative. It's more than a film; it's a catalyst for critical dialogue between different interest groups.

This ambitious campaign has not only advanced the conversation around Scotland's energy future, but has also led to tangible initiatives in community engagement and policy advocacy. The campaign has played a successful role in uniting diverse groups — from local communities to industry leaders — around a shared vision for a sustainable future. With this event, we honour these achievements and use them as a springboard for new collaborative efforts towards a just energy transition in Scotland.

    We look forward to welcoming you to an evening of stimulating dialogue and purposeful connections.

    RSVP now

    The award-winning documentary THE OIL MACHINE raises the question if we can break our addiction to oil and gas. Independently produced and co-funded by BBC Scotland and Screen Scotland, the film has won international acclaim at some of the world’s most significant documentary festivals. Across the UK, the film has been shown at more than 180 events to date – many of them hosted by groups who use the film as a tool to spark discussion and instigate action in their own communities. As we speak, the film is also being released in the United States and Norway.

    THE OIL MACHINE, directed by Emma Davie, is praised for offering an immersive experience of a highly complex issue, using a multi-stakeholder approach. The film brings together the voices of oil company executives, trade unions, climate scientists, historians, economists, investors, lawyers and young people. This sets it apart from other, more advocacy-focused videos, and has made it an ideal tool to start conversations between different interest groups.

    We are inviting Members of Parliament, peers, their staff, and other policymakers in Westminster to get a taste of the acclaimed film through a selection of clips, and to hear directly from the stakeholders who are at the frontline of the struggle to find solutions to what’s arguably the most urgent issue of our times. Key people featured in the film will join us on the night, giving MPs the opportunity to meet and discuss with them:

    • Ann Pettifor, Economist and Author, Prime Economics
    • Jake Molloy, Just Transition team, RMT Union
    • Tessa Khan, Climate Lawyer, Uplift
    • James Marriott, Author and Campaigner, Platform London
    • Guy Prince, Senior Oil & Gas Analyst, Carbon Tracker

    While taking a multi-stakeholder approach, the documentary makes it clear that we need to act urgently. Sir David King, the UK’s former Chief Scientific Advisor and Special Representative for Climate Change, says in the film: “I believe that what we do over the next five years will determine the future of humanity for the next millennium.”

    So against the backdrop of COP28, we will ask the rather urgent question: “Is the North Sea out of our control?”

    The panel will be hosted by writer Jen Stout, who has been reporting from the frontiers of oil (Shetland) and the frontlines of war (Ukraine), always with an emphasis on the human experience. A former BBC journalist, she freelances for outlets like The London Review of Books, Prospect and New Humanist. Her debut book Night Train to Odesa comes out in May 2024.

    RSVP by 29 November.

    Please note this is a private event, by invitation only. The RSVP form below is only intended for MPs and peers, their staff, and a number of external invitees. If you're not one of them, your RSVP may be cancelled.

    Oil has been an invisible machine at the core of our economy and society. It now faces an uncertain future as activists and investors demand change. Is this the end of oil?!

    By highlighting the complexities of how oil is embedded in our society – from high finance to cheap consumer goods – THE OIL MACHINE brings together a wide range of voices from oil company executives, economists, young activists, workers, scientists, and pension fund managers. It considers how this machine can be tamed, dismantled, or repurposed.

    We have five to ten years to control our oil addiction, and yet the licensing of new oil fields continues in direct contradiction with the Paris Climate Agreement. This documentary looks at how the drama of global climate action is playing out in the fight over North Sea oil.

    Oil companies are convinced that they can continue to keep drilling while keeping to Net Zero ambitions through adopting new technologies, such as carbon capture. But climate scientists are deeply sceptical of the Net Zero concept and the time it would take for these technologies to be effective.

    The film reveals the hidden infrastructure of oil from the offshore rigs and the buried pipelines to its flow through the stock markets of London. As the North Sea industry struggles to meet the need to cut carbon emissions, oil workers see their livelihoods under threat, and investors seek to protect their assets. Meanwhile a younger generation of climate activists are catalysed by the signs of impending chaos, and the very real threat of global sea level rises. THE OIL MACHINE explores the complexities of transitioning away from oil and gas as a society and considers how quickly we can do it.
