Featuring international and national films, such as director Stephanie Soechtigs Tapped, which documents the unregulated bottled-water industry, the three-day lineup also includes the work of numerous Colorado filmmakers. Christopher Faucheres The Great Squeeze, for instance, looks at modern civilizations dependence on fossil fuels, as well as past civilizations that have grown too fast, depleting their natural resources and ultimately collapsing.
Celebrating the natural world and raising environmental awareness without insane environmentalism is the goal of the festival, Brown says.
The film fest takes place November 5-7 at the American Mountaineering Center, 710 Tenth Street in Golden. To view a copy of the program or buy tickets, go to www.ceff.net or visit the Downtown Denver or Boulder REI stores.
