Reel Power, a new collaboration of films on energy and natural resource extraction developed from our Reel Engagement residency, will be part of Appalachia Rising, a mass mobilization calling for the end of mountaintop removal mining to be held in Washington, DC, on September 25-27, 2010. We will co-host a resource booth with a number of other remarkable filmmakers, participate in a media workshop on Saturday, and host a Working Films workshop on how to use the collection of Reel Power films to engage communities in ways that lead audiences to action.
Participants at Appalachia Rising will also be some of the first to be able to get Dirty Business: “Clean Coal” and the Battle for Our Energy Future early. This is one of the films in the collaboration for which we are coordinating the audience engagement campaign.
Stay tuned for some exciting updates. We hope to see you there.
