2009 Hawaii International Film Festival To Promote Green Movement
Fri, 09 Oct 2009

The 2009 Hawaii International Film Festival (Hiff) will continue its tradition of focusing on the green movement with a host of screenings that will be targeted towards preserving environmental sustainability through social responsibility.

The Green Screen Showcase will be sponsored by Whole Foods and will feature five films each carrying an important message. The five films will include "The Burning Season," "Earth Days," "Ingredients," "The Last Beekeeper" and "No Impact Man: The Documentary."

"The Burning Season" is an eco-thriller about a young man not afraid to confront the biggest challenge of our time. "Earth Days," from acclaimed director Robert Stone, traces the origins of the modern environmental movement through the eyes of nine Americans. "Ingredients" will explore a thriving local food movement as our world becomes a more flavorless, disconnected and dangerous place to eat.

"The Last Beekeeper" is a documentary by Jeremy Simmons examining the enormity of how bees are vanishing. "No Impact Man: The Documentary" is the story of Colin Beavan, a man with a blog and a mission to live one year with no net impact on the environment.

The festival will feature over 170 films from 36 different countries. The event will be held at the Regal Dole Cannery Stadium 18 Cinemas from October 15 until October 25. Tickets for the event can be purchased at www.hiff.org.
