The Sustainable Planet film festival was launched in 2005 as to celebrate the UNESCO DECADE on Sustainable Education. It is the platform where moviemakers meet with for-profit and not-for-profit organizations in order to watch movies, listen to visionary experts and participate in intelligent debates touching sustainable lifestyle solutions. The festival has already been produced in three different countries.
MOVIES FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD
Films that have been entered in the Sustainable Planet film festival since 2005 come from India, Belgium, the USA, France, Haiti, Lebanon, Germany, Australia and Brazil The movies showcase community building efforts and/or environmental care practices. The opening documentary for the 2009 edition is made by Award Winning Director Tad Fettig, whose PBS series “e2” deals with the economies of being environmentally conscious. This series will shortly be featured on the Green Sundance Channel.
VISIONARY MINDS WILL ADDRESS THE AUDIENCE
With the hard reality of declining established corporations, new economies and social values are growing and all the eyes are on the green economy. The numbers of early adopters of this new paradigm are 50 million American citizens and many questions are rising as to who is doing what, where to go and what to buy? We have therefore lined up a group of visionary minds, who will share their experience in the green market. The audience will hear from Kim Slicklein, CEO of Enclave Rising, Steven Lovink, founder of Planet 2025, Hazel Henderson, CEO of Ethical Markets and Alberto Gonzalez, Founder of Gusto Organics, just to name a few.
YOUR UPCOMING SUSTAINABLE PLANET APPOINTMENT
For its fourth edition, we have chosen to produce the event on Saturday June 20th at the Bohemian Hall in Manhattan, situated at 321 East 73rd street.
