Film Series @ your library

Attending the ALA conference, specifically at some SustainRT events (more on that soon!) a number of people were discussing how to educate their communities about sustainable issues and the idea of films popped up a few times. I had the pleasure during my time at UNCG Libraries to work with Sarah Dorsey (read more about it in this book chapter) who created and ran the Sustainable Film and Discussion series on campus (some are listed films here, I need to update it though!) She would coordinate one a month during the semester,  find campus or town “experts” to facilitate a discussion post film to discuss and consider how to apply the knowledge we just learned to our local community. Many times faculty would require or extra credit their class to attend too. Fantastic idea, brings people together from various disciplines (campus and community) and offers a venue to educate and discuss!
