Climate Action Film Festival Albany Debut

18 Feb

The host, SunCommon, is pleased to announce a showing of the Climate Action Film Festival in Albany, NY in partnership with Community Advocates for a Sustainable Environment. In its Capital District premiere, these environmental films will be shown at the

Spectrum Theater in Albany, NY on March 4 from 7-9 pm.

Single-night Event Featuring a 90-minute Presentation of
Ten Short Films from Around the World

The first festival of its kind exclusively featuring storytelling around solutions, rather than simply the impacts of climate change, the Climate Action Film Fest is a touring, single-night event featuring a 90-minute presentation of ten short films from around the world (225 films were pre-screened). Step away from the doom and gloom we know too well and move to a place of hope, inspiration and ACTION.

For tickets, visit: Event Tickets

For perhaps the first time in one’s life, one will be able to view enlightening, engaging and encouraging films about climate change all in one sitting. Enjoy being with kindred souls and take part in lively discussions after these films.

Seating is limited on a first come, first served basis. To date, the first three similar “marque” events have sold out in advance, so consider reserving tickets quickly. All proceeds from screenings are donated to aid local climate change activities.

$10-$20 is a suggested donation, but no one will be turned away.

Words Have Power, directed by Lynne Cherry …

One of the films being featured in this inaugural lineup, is Words Have Power, directed by Lynne Cherry, founder of Young Voices for the Planet, best-selling children’s author and currently a visiting scholar at the Benjamin Center at SUNY-New Paltz. Words Have Power features 10-year-old Jaysa Mellers, a girl on the front lines of climate change who stands up to a power plant – and wins. Her dynamic speeches at rallies and City Hall catalyze her community to fight the coal-fired power plant that causes her asthma, and together they shut it down.

One-night Debut at the Spectrum Theater in Albany, NY on March 4 from 7-9 pm.
