If I’m honest, I’d have to say the Toronto’s NFB Mediatheque programs so much great stuff every day of the week that I can’t keep up with it all. Just recently, I discovered that they host a monthly environmentally-themed screening series called Green Screens. These socially-conscious films are screened for free (FREE!) and are followed by Q&A sessions or panel discussions with subject matter experts. Their partner for this series is the Canadian Institute for Environmental Law and Policy.
April’s selection is The Arctic Circle: Battle for the Pole, a stunning HD film about oil exploration and extraction in the Arctic. It screens Wednesday April 7th at 7:00pm at the NFB Mediatheque (150 John Street) and admission is FREE. The film will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Peter J. Ewins, Senior Officer, Species Conservation, WWF-Canada.
