Join us for an encore Ithaca screening featuring tabling by local sustainability groups and renewable energy installers. Since our community sneak peek screening at the end of September, we have refined the film and added lots of animations so even you’ve seen it, there’s lot’s of new stuff to check out!

The screening will be followed by a special “Women Power” panel discussion including director Shira Golding Evergreen and some of the local innovators featured in the film – Gay Nicholson of Sustainable Tompkins, McKenzie Jones Rounds of Ithaca Biodiesel, Gwendolyn Barr of Weaver Wind Energy, Annie Koreman of Sierra Club Finger Lakes Group and Lexie Hain of Enfield Energy and Snug Planet.

This event is co-presented by Finger Lakes Bioneers, Ithaca Green Building Alliance, Sierra Club Finger Lakes Group and Sustainable Tompkins.

The screening kicks off a NY state tour co-sponsored by Finger Lakes Bioneers and Sierra Club Finger Lakes Group.

We hope you’ll join us!

Report from the Local Food, Fiber & Energy Fair




On November 17, we participated in the 3rd annual Local Food, Fiber & Energy Fair at Mann Library on the Cornell University Campus. We had a table for Empowered in the energy section of the fair alongside some of the folks featured in the film – Ithaca Biodiesel, Enfield Energy, Renovus Energy and Sustainable Tompkins.

We played the rough cut of the film on a loop while handing out free buttons and letting people know about the upcoming screening at Cinemapolis on Dec 7.

The fair had great energy and a lot of student foot traffic, thanks to the great location. Fair organizer, Jeff Piestrak, said the event was getting so big that they will need to expand to a larger space next year – woohoo!
