Join us for an evening of great environmental storytelling as we screen the winners of the 2014 Eric Moe Awards, founded by Julia and Richard Moe in memory of their son Eric to honor his strong interest in film and commitment to the environment. The awards, in their inaugural year, recognize the year’s best short films on inventive solutions to sustainability.

We will be screening the following films:

Eric Moe Award Winner
Amazing Grace, a Zambian/South African film by Rowan Pybus, spotlights one man’s deep-seated love for the rapidly decreasing forests around Livingstone, Zambia. Introduced by Rowan Pybus.

Runner-Up
Hope, a UK student production by Simone Giampaolo, is an educational, animated comedy showing an encounter between humankind and planet Earth.

Finalists
Field Chronicles: Chingaza—The Water’s Journey, a USA film by Peter Stonier, John Martin, Becca Field, and Sebastian Perry, explores the páramos of Bogotá, a fragile ecosystem that provides eight million city dwellers with water. Introduced by Peter Stonier.

Good Habits in 60 Seconds, a Brazilian film by Marlon Tenório, offers many ways to change our relationship with the world—in 60 seconds.

Ordinary Life, a Japanese film by Tomoya Nakamura and Shoki Watanabe, captures a family’s standard, unvarying morning routine, including the forgotten consequences of their actions.
