The Media Institute for Social Change, a nonprofit that supports independent media by educating and empowering students, will host their first local screening of their Fourth Annual STUDENT SUSTAINBILITY FILM FESTIVAL. Admission is FREE.
Films were submitted nationally, from students enrolled in high school, college and graduate school. The short films (less than 8 minutes) outline innovative projects that schools, individuals or communities are implementing to advance sustainability. Submissions include work from Dickinson College, UC Santa Cruz and University of Vermont and explore a dynamic range of environmental solutions, from supporting local foods, to using compost “power” and other alternative energy sources.
Join us in supporting students’ incredible efforts! The winner of our Festival will be announced at the competition and will receive a $1,000 cash prize. The audience will also participate in picking a “popular choice” award.
Event will include giveaways from Chinook Book, New Seasons Market and a raffle with prizes from Laurelwood, Dave's Killer Bread the Hollywood Theatre and Porque No Taqueria.
