Reel Change film fest looks at sustainability

Reel Change Film Festival brings two movies about sustainability to Revelstoke's Roxy Theatre this Thursday, Oct. 18.

Sustainability is one of the biggest issues of our day. How to create a strong economy that also protects the environment for future generations is a big challenge we all face.

Sustainability is the focus of a new city planning and it will be the focus of the Reel Change Sustainability Film Fest, which comes to the Roxy Theatre this Thursday at 6:30 p.m.

The film fest will present two movies. Switch follows Dr. Scott Tinker as he explores the world’s energy sites from coal to solar to oil to biofuels. He visits some highly restricted sites that have not been shown on film before and talks to leaders of government, industry and academia.

On the Line is about Frank Wolf and Todd McGowan’s 2,400-kilometre journey on the route of Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline from Bruderheim, Alta., to Kitimat, B.C. The filmmakers biked, hiked, rafter and kayaked the entire route, speaking to people along the way to explore the potential impacts of the pipeline.

The festival is put on by the Fresh Outlook Foundation, a Kelowna-based charity that ifsfocused on building sustainable communities. The Reel Change Sustainability Film Fest brings together 10 movies about sustainability issues. The festival, in its fourth year, takes place in Kelowna and Kamloops, and travels to other communities. The goal is to produce behavioural change and inspire people to take action in their lives.

Tickets are $10 and available at Talisman, Wearabouts and the Roxy Theatre.
