The Green Film Series has announced their fall line-up of films.  This special series organized by Sustainable Coast Magazine ( and the Gibsons Green Team in collaboration with the Sunshine Coast Film Society features environmental-themed films shown at the Gibsons Heritage Theartre. Scheduled for the months of September, October and November, the films will be shown on Mondays, alternating with the SCFS's regular schedule of films.
The opening film on September 16, More Than Honey, brings the current bee crisis up close and personal. Using high-speed cameras and endoscopic lenses, the director, Marcus Imhoof, gives us the bee's perspective. “My intention with More Than Honey was to allow the spectator to understand the drama at play and highlight the pressures of the global economy on these small insects”, says Imhoof.
Five years in the making, the film addresses growing public concern about the ongoing crisis facing pollinators world-wide that has resulted in, among other things, the European Union implementing a 2 year ban on neonicotinoid pesticides. In Ontario and Quebec, beekeepers have begun to press for similar bans. 
Following the film local beekeepers, along with Chris Hergesheimer of the One Straw Society, will engage in a panel discussion with the audience. The beekeepers will bring their wonderful local honey—including comb honey just harvested from their hives at the Botanical Garden—to sell after the screening.
 The October 28 film is Tiny: A Story About Living Small. This film follows one couple’s attempt to build a “tiny house” with no building experience and raises questions about sustainability, good design, and the true meaning of a smaller footprint. Could you live in 133 sq feet? Meet local tiny homeowners and builders after the screening for a discussion on living this lifestyle.
On November 25 the film Do The Math produced by 350.0rg will be shown. This rousing documentary covers the rising movement in the United States to change the terrifying math of the climate crisis and challenge the fossil fuel industry. Connecting the dots between extreme weather, climate change and fossil fuel energy, Bill McKibben leads the call for fossil fuel divestment. Local climate change activists will partiucpate in the after-film discussion.
The Green Film series is dedicated to using film as a tool for community engagement on environmental and sustainability issues. The screening events aim to serve as a catalyst for dialogue, networking and action.
Tickets are $8 for SC Film Society members. $10 for others (includes single-event membership fee). Screening times are at 7:30 pm., doors open at 7 pm. The Gibsons Heritage Playhouse is located at 662 North Road in Gibsons, BC.
