Creating Awareness. Inspiring Action!
Yes, Virginia, there is a 2020 Erin Eco-Film Fest - just not yet
We hope that the New Year – and new decade – are unfolding well for each and every one of you!
Just to let you know: our 2020 Erin Eco-Film Fest is off to a much slower start than the usual late January kick-off. This is actually deliberate! (and not because we're master procrastinators, although there is a soupçon of that too... )
Given the gruesome winter weather we experienced last year - blizzards, wind storms, black ice, you name it! – we were forced us postpone and reschedule several films. So...we're skipping January and February altogether in 2020, and saving our docs for March and April.
If you're on our Erin Eco-Film Fest email list, we'll keep you informed as we get closer to screening our first film in March. If not, send us an email to join our list - click here .
Meanwhile, Halton Hills and Orangeville are a GO for January!
So, mark your calendars for these two January events:
1. Wednesday, January 22: The Woman Who Loves Giraffes (trailer here) at the John Elliott Theatre in Georgetown (Adults $10, Students $5. Doors open 6:30, film at 7:00 pm). The subject of this acclaimed documentary is Anne Innes Dagg, the world’s first ‘giraffologist,’ who turns 87 on January 25. In the film, this Canadian trail-blazer retraces the steps of her first expedition to Africa. This screening will be attended by Anne Innes Dagg's daughter Mary and her husband Paul.
2. Tuesday, January 28: Orangeville's (actually Dufferin Caledon Climate Change Action's) new season opens with "What the BL##P Can I Do?" - a panel discussion featuring four local eco-activists + a short doc about the global group Extinction Rebellion. Doors open at 6:30, program starts at 7:00 pm at Westside Secondary School, Orangeville. Free admission, donations welcome).
Hope to see you at both of these events!
