The summer blockbuster season may be coming to a close, but the autumn film festival season is just getting started. Get ready to be inspired and check out the documentary film The New Environmentalists – from Chicago to The Karoo, featuring the 2013 Goldman Prize recipients at a film fest near you.

The New Environmentalists share a common goal – safeguarding the Earth’s natural resources from exploitation and pollution, while fighting for justice in their communities. The film is the latest in the Mill Valley Film Group’s Emmy Award-winning series featuring inspiring portraits of six passionate and dedicated activists.
