1. Filmmaking as a Tool for Environmentalism Date: 6th September Time: 4PM
Host: ALT EFF (https://www.facebook.com/alllivingthingsfestival/)
Registration Link: https://insider.in/filmmaking-as-a-tool-for-environmentalists--sep6-2020/event
If a global pandemic has taught us anythings, it’s that the earth is not able to cope up with the modern way of life that we all lead - the animals, forests, oceans, and atmosphere are, in fact, slowly deteriorating. In these times, environmentalism is becoming a vital movement.
Film and visual media has always been a great tool to inspire and mobilise people on various issues, and films like Wall-E, Chasing Ice, and so on have done the same to inform people of the ecological crisis our world is in today. But how effective are these films, really? Do they have the shock value needed to mobilise people? Tune into this event for a valuable and eye-opening discussion on the same. The panel discussion takes place on Sunday at 4PM, and is for free! You can find more information on it here:
