Solarfest at SVAC to Screen Film
On Friday, November 4, at 6:30 p.m., SolarFest will host a screening and discussion of the latest film from Oscar Award-nominated film director, playwright and environmental activist Josh Fox in the Arkell Pavilion at the Southern Vermont Arts Center (SVAC) in Manchester. Climate change may be the greatest threat our world has ever known. ‘How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change’ was shot in 12 countries on six continents. The movie asks, “What is it that climate change can’t destroy? What is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away?”
Doors open at 6 p.m. A moderated discussion of climate change begins at 6:30 sharp, with the two-hour film beginning at 7 p.m. Refreshments will be provided. Tickets are free, but advance sign-up is appreciated. Attendees can register at solarfest.org.
“This event is another opportunity for the community to gather, share ideas and together confront the challenges of our time,” said Mike Bailey, SolarFest Board trustee. “SolarFest at SVAC is the perfect place to learn and to have fun.” Robert McCafferty, president of the SVAC Board added, “We are thrilled that SolarFest at SVAC continues to expand and bring people exciting ideas, cut energy use, save money and protect the planet, all surrounded with the art and natural beauty of the Southern Vermont Art Center.” SVAC is located off of West Road in Manchester.
