SustainFloyd Film Series
Since 2011 SustainFloyd has been showing a series of documentary films relating to our mission. It’s one way to get enliven the local discussion of issues relating to securing a sustainable future.
Our film committee considers ideas for films submitted by board and community members and tries to offer documentaries covering a wide rage of topics. Typically we show 6 films a year, 3 in the spring and three in the fall, each designed as the basis of a community gathering and discussion. Our hope is that these events offer ideas and hope of ways that both individuals and community groups can make an impact.
Fall 2017 Film Series
We are starting our fall film series with Look & See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry. The film focuses on the many stories surrounding the residents of Mr. Berry’s home county, Henry County, Kentucky as they grapple with the ever-changing connection to the land and community.
Mr. Berry is an “outspoken citizen of an endangered world,” along with being an accomplished writer, poet, teacher, and farmer. His works have influenced SustainFloyd over the years and also have caused great impact on other local and national communities. We are very privileged to screen this film to you.
Join us on October 12 for a community pot-luck, screening, and discussion. The Floyd Country Store (206 South Locust Street in Floyd) doors will open at 6pm with the film beginning at 6:30pm. Tickets are a suggested donation of $5.00 and available at the door. We look forward to sharing this film and see you at our event.
We hope to see you at all three of our Fall films!
