Sustainable Maine is a program of the Points North Institute in partnership with Working Films. The program is designed to connect Maine-based environmental leaders and allies with powerful documentary films that spark public dialogue and responsive, local actions to address the intersecting environmental challenges (and opportunities) related to climate change, ocean and land conservation, sustainable agriculture and renewable energy.
Sustainable Maine launched at the 2015 festival with a strategy summit facilitated by Working Films – a national organization that links documentary film to long-term community organizing and activism. The meeting brought together 15 environmental leaders working to create more sustainable and resilient communities across the state. Participants designed a creative, action-oriented public engagement plan that includes an ongoing statewide documentary screening tour.
Using documentary media to connect global environmental challenges with the needs of Maine communities, the Points North Institute’s Sustainable Maine program helps raise public awareness, involvement, and support for a just transition and sustainable future in our state.
