E-M:/ environmental film festival



Folks,
Michigan State University is sponsoring an environmental film festival
and fair Nov. 13-16. *Green on the Big
Screen*<http://cas.msu.edu/modules.php?name=Pages&sp_id=1027&pmenu_id=182>he lps
support an endowment for the university's Knight
Center for Environmental Journalism. <http://ej.msu.edu>
Here's just a taste of the great film line-up:
Mining Madness, Water Wars: The Great Lakes in Balance This timely,
compelling documentary lays bare a controversial proposal to blast a mine
beneath a blue ribbon trout stream in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Despite
extensive scientific testimony that the project's flaws could place workers
in peril and jeopardize this Lake Superior tributary and its watershed,
citizens and environmental organizations have found Lansing unresponsive and
now look to the justice system for resolution. *Producer Angela Nebel is
attending.
The entire line-up, which includes feature films, documentaries and
student productions, is
here<http://cas.msu.edu/modules.php?name=Pages&sp_id=1029&pmenu_id=176>.
Most films include discussions after they are shown and that are led by
people with knowledge of the issues they depict.
Tickets are $3 for one movie, $6 for three movies and just $15 if you
want to catch every single one of these great flicks.
Groups interested in sponsoring the festival can find out how
here<http://cas.msu.edu/modules.php?name=Pages&sp_id=1031&pmenu_id=181>.
Or learn how to host a table for your organization at the fair
here<http://cas.msu.edu/modules.php?name=Pages&sp_id=1055&pmenu_id=184>
.
For each dollar we raise for the endowment, the John S. and James L.
Knight Foundation <http://www.knightfoundation.org/> will put in another 33
cents. The money is used to support programs that teach students and
professional journalists how to better cover the environment. Among our
public outreach efforts are the Michigan's Echo
<http://ej.msu.edu/news.php>news service and the Great
Lakes Wiki <http://greatlakeswiki.org>. We also hold the Great Lakes
Environmental Journalism Training Institute for reporters who cover the
environment in the Great Lakes states and Canadian provinces.
We appreciate your support. You'll have a good time while supporting a
good cause. More details below.
