Producer Suzanne McMannis attended the screening in March at the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capitol. An enthusiastic crowd of about 120 people joined her for the evening, including several former Ithacans now relocated to DC.
Prepared with remarks about DIY filmmaking, Suzanne ended up fielding
very serious questions about the big picture for renewables. The audience really wanted to know how to move alternative energy ahead in their communities, and the Solarize Tompkins SE campaign seemed to be of great interest.
The program of films at this festival was marvelously impressive. It is inspiring to see such a far-reaching commitment among activists and artists to a sustainable future. Please support these films anyway you can with family, friends, and organizations because they are at the forefront of bringing real news to viewers.
An old friend of producer Suzanne McMannis was able to attend the Colorado Environmental Film Festival in February. The event is held not far from Denver, and a good-size crowd attended the Friday afternoon screening. Colorado has initiated a couple of terrific state programs promoting renewables, and it was inspiring for us to bring news of Tompkins County’s own robust commitment to alternative energy and document the support we enjoy from organizations such as NYSERDA. Yay, New York!
