The 2012 Planet in Focus Film Festival
Point of View is a proud media sponsor of Planet in Focus, Canada’s largest environmental film festival!
From their website:
“Since 1999, Planet in Focus has played a significant role in helping to raise awareness about the state of our planet through the power of film. As the producer of Canada’s largest environmental film festival, Planet in Focus showcases a wide range of outstanding films and filmmakers from across Canada and around the world. For thirteen years, our annual October film festival provides a forum for artistic and educational excellence, industry recognition, the discovery of new Canadian talent, and even has provided first funding for some of our industry’s most exciting films about our planet, including Yung Chang’s Gemini Award winning Up the Yangtze.”
The festival also presents an annual Eco Hero award, and this year we’re thrilled that the 2012 recipient is documentarian Jennifer Baichwal. She’ll be accepting the award and participating in a panel discussion moderated by POV contributer Adam Nayman on October 12th.
With many great documentaries being shown, we encourage you to get your tickets today!
