Best of Planet in Focus at ALLIANCE Museums of Natural History across Canada
For two years running Planet in Focus and the Alliance of Natural History Museums have reached an exciting agreement to create a national tour of a diverse selection of films—All premieres from Toronto’s internationally-acclaimed Planet in Focus Environmental Film Festival produced for the past 13 years every October.
Soon, eco-conscious Canadians—and those who just like a good real-life story—from St John’s to Whitehorse will have access to a startling array of award-winning documentaries on topics-of-concern as diverse as urban gardening in the delightful Truck Farm, Cacao farming in Elisha and the Cacao Tree, the science of climate change, The Polar Explorer, our “throw-away” society in the light-hearted The Clean Bin Project, saving a whale in The Whale (narrated by Ryan Reynolds), a filmmaker’s journey through the Tar Sands in White Water, Black Gold and the charming La Reine malade (The Ailing Queen) about the widespread ramifications of mass bee “hive collapse.”
“The international and Canadian films we are screening on the tour,” explains Artistic Director, Kathleen Mullen, “shine light on the state of the planet today and provide points of discussion and debate for the audience and guests in attendance.”
