Offshore is an independent documentary that brings together varying perspectives on working in offshore oil and gas and renewable energy - and explores what the coming energy transition means for workers and communities around the UK North Sea.

The film looks at how communities and regions have been impacted by past industrial decline, the risks workers face in an increasingly precarious industry and how they can organise for the future.

The climate crisis means we must rethink our energy systems: where we get energy from, how it's produced and who benefits from it. Workforces and communities all over the UK will be impacted by the energy transition and have the potential to benefit from more publicly owned, local and renewable energy.
