SunCommon is pleased to announce a showing of the Climate Action Film Festival in Albany, NY.
This is a collection of short films from near and far featuring stories about those taking action against climate change. We will step away from the doom and gloom we know too well and move to a place of hope, inspiration and ACTION.
In its Capital District premiere, sponsored by SunCommon, CAFF 2020 hits the Spectrum Theater in Albany, NY on March 4. We’re proud to host this event in partnership with Community Advocates for a Sustainable Environment. All proceeds from this screening will be donated to this local climate action grassroots group.
This will be first festival of its kind exclusively featuring storytelling around solutions, rather than simply the impacts of climate change, the Climate Action Film Fest (CAFF 2020) is a touring, single-night event featuring a 90-to-120-minute presentation of short films from around the world.
For perhaps the first time in your life you will be able to view engaging, enlightening and encouraging films about climate change all in one sitting. Enjoy being with kindred souls and take part in lively discussions before and after these films.
The program screens from 7:00-9:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 4 at the Landmark Spectrum 8 Theaters at 290 Delaware Ave Albany, NY. Tickets are available in advance with a “pay what you can” on-line donation of $10 to $20, but no one will be turned away. Seating is limited on a first come, first-served basis.
Watch nine films from featured filmmakers Tom Mustill, Dan Lin and more. One of the films being featured in this, CAFF’s inaugural lineup, is Words Have Power, directed by Lynne Cherry, founder of Young Voices for the Planet, best-selling children’s author and currently a visiting scholar at the Benjamin Center at SUNY-New Paltz. Words Have Power features 10-year-old Jaysa Mellers, a girl on the front lines of climate change who stands up to a power plant – and wins. Her dynamic speeches at rallies and City Hall catalyze her community to fight the coal-fired power plant that causes her asthma, and together they shut it down.
