Golden Road Productions in collaboration with the Alliance for Resilient Communities presents the first annual International Resilience Film Festival. In honor of Earth Day we present a weekend of cutting edge films, keynote speakers, workshops and live music. “Building Bridges from issues to solutions” will consist of three days, nine venues, 18 films, 15 performers, 30 keynote speakers, 12 workshops, 20 nonprofits and two community forums April 19 through April 21.

The festival seeks to recognize the importance of innovative approaches to environmental protection, sustainability, regeneration, and the role of the public and private sectors in identifying problems and highlighting solutions in changing the current paradigm of profit over people. Communities and ecosystems demonstrate the power of cultural and environmental resilience and resistance in the face of harmful structures and systems. Thus, resilience is a framework to understand how to build an infrastructure in a way that will survive the unexpected, provide operational flexibility and work within natural systems.

The main goals of the film festival are to engage in innovative solutions, awaken activism in the process of social, cultural, environmental, and economic change, inspire and empower individuals and communities to take ownership of their health and wellbeing, and to initiate concrete change for the benefit of future generations.

Tickets at Briar Patch, Mama Madrone, Harmony Books and online at EventBrite & PayPal.
