GREEN INNOVATION / GREEN IMAGINATION SHORTS ( All Ages ) 30 mins

The Great Green Innovation / Green Imagination Challenge!

InerciaPic2_300dpi

We had big dreams of showing a selection each day of shorts around a theme of innovative ideas to help with the climate crisis. Films that kids would find interesting and inspiring. Sadly our search was only mildly successful. There are a lot of films out there about the climate crisis but they are dire and bleak focusing on the causes and the dire future ahead. Some films we did find about innovation were told in such a way that most kids and frankly most adults would be bored. So we here at BAICFF are offering up a challange to all the brave, imaginative, amazing school groups, film clubs, film organizations and filmmakers of the Bay Area and beyond :

Make a short film to inspire us about innovative things, ideas , actions people are taking to solve the climate crisis! We call it THE GREAT GREEN INNOVATION / GREEN IMAGINATION CHALLENGE!

Join us, first to watch INERTIA, a film that pretty much spells out one of the big hurdles that most of us have in going green and changing our lifestyles in a word – Inertia. Then let’s look at the smattering of films we did find about people trying to do something different or people who did think different as examples of films we here at BAICFF want to see more of! Then let’s kick off the Great Green Innovation / Green Imagination Challenge!
