Tokens of Appreciation campaign launches

We’ve just launched a new fundraising campaign to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the Projecting Change Film Festival. It’s called Tokens of Appreciation, and its mission is to provide access to the festival experience to people in our community. Why tokens? No paper, no tickets, no printing. Instead we give each festival attendee a token they trade for entrance to the theater at each screening. By purchasing a Token, you are not buying yourself a ticket to the festival (but […]

Presenting: If a Tree Falls

As we kick off Projecting Change 2012, we’re so excited to announce our first film, Academy-award nominated If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front, which tells the remarkable story of one man’s involvement with the Earth Liberation Front, a group the FBI calls the US’s primary domestic terrorist threat.

Live From The Festival – Projecting Change 2011

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 […]

Hemlock Printers You’ve Probably Seen Their Work Around Town!

If you’ve seen any of the promotional material for the Projecting Change Film Festival that’s happening this weekend, it’s all thanks to Hemlock Printers. The Burnaby-based company that’s been winning awards for its practices in sustainability was responsible for printing and donating all of the posters, cards, and pamphlets for the event. And all of it was done in carbon-neutral fashion. I (Bryce Tarling) was asked to put together a brief interview with the company to learn more about what […]

Projecting Change with Sustainable Tourism

The exhilaration of exploring a place much unlike your home and meeting strangers who don’t speak your mother tongue; the satisfying exhaustion after a long day of hiking through the countryside and scaling mountains to catch that perfect sunrise and sunset; that food you ate, that brew you drank, that photo you took with your new friend. Any traveler can appreciate these things, and Cynthia Connell is no exception. Cynthia caught the travel bug when she was just two years […]
