Join us for film, food and fun. Sustainability endeavors are growing strong in our community. In the High Country, we share a rich history of working together to ensure that our mountain region will forever be a wonderful place to call home. The Homegrown Film Festival celebrates some of these efforts through a series of eight mini-documentaries, each spotlighting local people and organizations, including:
- 350 Boone (climate change)
- Appalachian Mountain Brewery (small business sustainability)
- ASU Office of Sustainability (campus sustainability)
- Biophilic Art Installation (sustainability art)
- Blue Ridge Conservancy (land protection)
- Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture (sustainable agriculture)
- Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation (sustainable tourism)
- National Committee for the New River (water protection)
This event is hosted by participants in the Sustainable Development course Outreach Skills for Sustainability, including students and instructor Laura England (firstname.lastname@example.org). Click here for event website.
Thank you to event co-sponsor ASU Office of Sustainability as well as Tom Hansell of University Documentary Film Services for assisting the class in creating these mini-documentary films.
