Day one of Projecting Change Film Festival was an absolute blast. We rocked off the morning with Youth Day and two sold out showings of What’s on Your Plate? and The Clean Bin Project. A definite morning highlight was watching Olympic athlete Zach Bell delivering an inspiring speech to a fixated crowd of eager young minds. 700 students exited the SFU Woodwards post films ramped up to take action and armed with Projecting Change 2011 loot bags!
The atmosphere was no less explosive as excited Sea Shepperd enthusiasts lined up for rush seating to Eco Pirate: The Story of Paul Watson. Following the film the Sea Shepherd himself took the stage and answered questions from the crowd.
One of my favorite humorous quotations of the night (there were many).
“I’m not ‘wanted’ for anything specific, but people tend to give me a hard time when I cross borders.” – Paul Watson
