Hi,

The Green Screen International Film Festival would like to offer the International Cinema Meetup Group half price tickets to screenings on November 2, 3, and 5.

Just come to the box office at the Kay Meek Centre and ask for the half price tickets under the International Cinema Meetup group.  The tickets are usually $25 for adults for the whole evening screenings, from 7 – 11 pm, but half price would make the admission $12.50.

The festival is November 1,2,3 and 5, and will show environmental films from Vancouver and around the world.  More info below and on www.greenscreenfilmfest.ca .  Thank you.

Helen

November 1, 2, 3 and 5 at 7 pm

Kay Meek Centre (1700 Mathers Ave.  West Vancouver)

 

Presenting Sponsors: The North Shore Coho Society

and the Mark Sager Foundation for the Arts

 

One of the first things the jury who screened entries to the first annual Green Screen International Film Festival noticed is that major Hollywood stars are lending support to environmental issues through films.

 

Robert Redford appears in and narrates The New Environmentalists, one of the films screened on Opening Night, November 1.  Canadian Actress Tantoo Cardinal, who stars in the short drama Ancestors Eyes, will also be receiving an Outstanding Achievement Award on Opening Night.

 

Tom Selleck narrates a film called American Serengeti, and Glenn Close narrates Nature's Greatest Defender.  British actor Ewan McGregor and director Sir David Attenborough lend their talents to the documentary, Ancient Forests.

 

Local and Canadian films are also represented: Victoria director Susan Smitten's Blue Gold is about the Tsilhqot'in First Nations' fight against Taseko Mines' proposal to drain Teztan Biny (Fish Lake) in order to stockpile mining waste, which may contaminate the largest wild salmon run in North America; in Wild Chance, Vancouver filmmaker Ron den Daas combines science and art to explore the North Shore watershed and asks 'what are the odds of salmon survival in urban creeks in the 21st century?'; and Vancouver's Jon Cooksey's How to Boil a Frog is about too many people using up too little planet, much too fast.

 

Canada's Greatest Summer Job-Wild Places--What is Wilderness? was made in celebration of the 125th anniversary of national parks in Canada, where 32 student video reporters worked in the 32 Parks Canada field units across the country.

 

"These are stories of new kinds of heroes.  They aren't the ones we see on the six-o'clock news," Green Screen Executive Director Carrie Hunter says, "and they won't show up in popular magazines or newspapers.  But they ARE heroes.  They represent everything that is good in humanity and I don't think anyone will attend this festival without wanting to become a better person - and to find something - whether big or small - that they can personally contribute."
