More about The Power of Activism

Duration: 53 minutes

Directed and written by: Steven Pasvolsky

Produced by: Michelle Dado-Millyn, Steven Pasvolsky

Synopsis: This film takes us on an emotional journey from sacred ground above Byron Bay to Antarctica, Indonesia to Pakistan, and is sure to light a fire under the strongest climate change denier. THE POWER OF ACTIVISM focuses on six highly spirited female activists as they are put under the microscope to ascertain the financial impact of their environmental solutions… and the results are astonishing. From shark conservation to indigenous practices, intensive farming to plastic pollution; all their ‘causes’ fall under the umbrella of “climate change”, but they should also fall under the umbrella of “saving tax-payers hundreds of millions of dollars!”

More about The Temptation of Trees

Duration: 43 minutes

Directed, Written, and Produced by: Andrea Sparrow

Synopsis: New studies reveal that growing our existing forested lands to capture carbon, preserve biodiversity and protect water, animals and people is one of our best tools in fighting climate change. Experts on Forests, Carbon and timber share the science and methods we have to to take a step toward a better future.
