    Was very inspired by Bill McKibben’s talk, I want to hear/do more! Love that this is a positive, can-do spin on some very scary, serious stuff.

    Looking forward to seeing this film as “thinking local first” is so important to small communities like Nevada County (and big cities too), for so many reasons. Shopping locally supports small businesses (mom and pops), helps keep your dollars circulating locally, saves you gas and money, and more. I love Nevada City and wish to keep our lovely community thriving!

    What a great idea! A National screening to inspire local community involvement. Thinking local first is imperative for us on so many different levels – local, national and global! One just has to drive down the hill and see the dense layer of smog that is covers the Sacramento Valley to be remided of this.

    It’s great to see these movies about activism and global-improvement being made and dispersed throughout the country. Movies are a great way to get something noticed and heard by the majority. I think looking at the small-scale picture, our own communities, is one of the best ways to better our world. I’m really looking forward to seeing this film!

    Will attend to see how this film message can be translated into local messages that could be produced to run on NCTV, so they can reach a larger audience and so we’re not always “preaching to the choir.”
