World Community is once again presenting its challenging documentary film series at the North Island College Theatre, featuring Best of Fest screenings.
There will also be sneak previews of films that will be featured in the 2012 World Community Film Festival in February.
The first screening will be Dirty Business: Clean Coal and the Battle for Our Energy Future on Sept. 26 at 7:30 p.m. This film played to a full house at the 2011 film festival, with people being turned away at the door.
Dirty Business reveals the true social and environmental costs of coal, examining what it means to be so dependent upon a 19th-century technology that is the largest single source of greenhouse gases. It goes on to tell the stories of innovators who are pointing the way to an alternative green energy future
Can coal really be made “clean?” Can renewables and efficiency replace coal?
Dirty Business seeks answers in a series of stories shot in China, Saskatchewan, Kansas, West Virginia, Nevada and New York. Admission is by donation.
The next film in this series will be screened Oct 18. For more information, go to www.worldcommunity.ca.
