‘Coalition of the Willing’ is an animated short film about an open source approach to climate change. Directed and produced by British film maker Simon Robson, Coalition was made by an international network of artists totaling 77 people. Coalition explores how we can use the internet to leverage activists, experts, and ordinary people in collaborative projects to fight climate change. Mixing swarm activity with social revolution, it makes the case for a new generation of online activism to tackle the challenges of our time.

‘Coalition of the Willing’ won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2010 Hampton International Film Festival. It won Best Short Film at the 2012 San Francisco Green Film Festival, and the Waverley Award for Best Environmental Short at 2011 FlickerFest Sydney.
