We’re partnering with Sunshine Cinema and hitting the road with Appalachian Voices this Summer to travel through the Tennessee Valley. Communities in the region struggle with a range of challenges because of dirty energy, from high electric bills to coal ash pollution. We’ll hold solar powered screening events that bring together community stakeholders to vision ways to reform of the Tennessee Valley Authority and other local power companies. By powering film events with solar, we’ll offer inspiration on the screen while modeling what alternative energy and climate solutions look like!

This effort is the first in a learning partnership between Working Films and Sunshine Cinema, a South African solar powered cinema network that trains youth to be impact producers and hosts solar powered screenings with grassroots activists using documentary and feature films to spark dialogue and inspire social change in their communities.
