Award-Winning Documentaries and Community Conversations

Floyd, Virginia – SustainFloyd has chosen five films to present for its 2012 Winter Film Series at the Floyd Country Store.   Each film screening will be a community event with various food offerings and community discussions surrounding the evening’s theme. Film screening will generally begin at 7 p.m. and some panel discussions will follow the screenings for those who want to ask questions.

“We are very happy to bring these films to Floyd”, says Mike Burton, Director of SustainFloyd, “they have been very popular and successful in creating a place for community to happen”.  The Winter Film Series will begin in January and run through April and the films to be presented are:
