Read all about the world record beating People's Premiere here.

Normal film premieres are glitzy and exclusive, with nobody invited except VIPs - but the People's Premiere is different: VIPs, IPs and plain old Ps are all welcome to the world's first INclusive film launch. Featuring synchronised screenings at a staggering 60 different cinemas across the nation. With a solar-powered cinema tent pitched in London's Leicester Square, the People's Premiere is also the planet's first truly green film premiere - no greenwash allowed.

Ele Ramsay

Ele’s worked at Christian Aid for four years and her highlight so far has been organising the Cut the Carbon March – the longest protest march in UK history! She arranged for 20 marchers to walk 1000 miles in 80days, lobbying MPs, companies and educating the public along the way – all in a bid to strengthen the UK Climate Change Bill. It was a crazy and exhausting project, but, by bringing 10 marchers from poor countries already experiencing changes in their climate, Christian Aid demonstrated the inextricable link between climate change and poverty. This year Ele will be working like mad to get as many UK campaigners Counting Down to Copenhagen as possible - and hopefully taking some activists to Copenhagen itself. Check out for more on the Countdown to Copenhagen Campaign.
