To support the development of a documentary on the Montreal Protocol

$304,200 Grant Value


The Montreal Protocol was designed to protect the ozone layer by phasing out the production of numerous substances.

The story of the Montreal Protocol is also the story of how two of the world's most unexpected eco-warriors - Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan - took action.

CIFF supported Windfall Films to produce a documentary - The Hole - to tell this story. 


The film is set to be aired on leading TV channels in the US, UK, Australia and Germany.
