Third Sun Solar
The Climate Action Film Festival was originally developed and produced by SunCommon, a New York-based solar installer, and has been shared with organizations and activists nationally to spark inspiration and create action on Climate Change. Third Sun Solar is the Ohio host for this event, and GEO is proud to partner with them as part of our climate change initiative.
The Festival includes a moderated panel discussion on Thursday, June 24 from 7:00-8:00 pm featuring Third Sun Solar’s non-profit partners Green Energy Ohio, The Ohio Environmental Council, and Rural Action. Tickets are available in advance for $10 or a “pay what you can” donation. Proceeds from ticket sales will be shared by the three non-profit organizations.
The films curated in the Climate Action Film Festival were selected to amplify voices and inspire further action. The following selection of five films has a total runtime of 50 minutes.
Imagine for 1 Minute: A one-minute meditation imagining a better future.
Future Grandma: This short film follows the story of a grandmother risking arrest in support of government action to address climate change.
Shepherd’s Song: A young farmer embarks on a new path with her nomadic flock of sheep, restoring ecosystems and preventing wildfires along the way.
Invasion: Invasion is a new film about the Unist’ot’en Camp, Gidimt’en checkpoint and the larger Wet’suwet’en Nation standing up to the Canadian government and corporations who continue colonial violence against Indigenous people.
Matagi Mālohi (Strong Winds): The Pacific Climate Warriors tell the story of their journey to uplift their people and shape a narrative that paints them not as victims of the climate crisis but as leaders, healers, nurturers, artists, gardeners, growers, seafarers and navigators.
