In 2017 the Cuban government approved a state plan to address climate change challenges, known as Tarea Vida (Life Task). Cuba and other Caribbean nations face disproportionately negative consequences from climate change such as heat waves, torrential rain, intensified hurricanes and rising sea levels. These threats require new forms of organization and intervention to protect human life, the economy and the environment. Cubas Life Task Combating Climate Change examines how Cuba is utilizing environmental science, natural solutions and community engagement in a long range plan for adaptation and mitigation in the face of climate change.

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter.
The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject!
