Coming Soon to a Festival Near You

August 22, 2013

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. These are true environmental heroes who have placed themselves squarely in harm’s way to battle intimidating adversaries while building strong grassroots support.

The Goldman Prize is teaming up with Mill Valley Film Group as part of the Mill Valley Film Festival’s Active Cinema Program. Active Cinema highlights films that feature groundbreaking social, environmental, and human rights issues, with the goal of connecting the power of film with the action of communities and organizations, and to help inspired audiences get involved.

Upcoming screenings of the New Environmentalists include:

Mill Valley Film Festival, Mill Valley, California: October 3-13, 2013

Heartland Film Festival, Indianaplous, Indiana: October 17-26, 2013

Chagrin Film Festival, Chagrin Falls, Ohio: October 2-6, 2013
