tim silverwood and bag it! film event
Plastic Bag Free Torquay, in conjunction with Take 3 Beach Clean Up initiative and Surf Coast Shire Council, will present a film night and talk by Tim Silverwood, surfer and environmentalist from the Central Coast of New South Wales.
Tim has just returned from a voyage to the North Pacific Gyre, (aka the Great Pacific Garbage Patch) aboard the Sea Dragon. The Sea Dragon’s mission was to research marine debris in the largest of the 5 global gyres and can be read about on Tim’s site here.
Tim also has rights to the award-winning film, Bag It!, and will be showing the film to local schools in the week leading up to our main screening at St Therese Primary School auditorium on Saturday 17th September, starting at 6pm. There’ll be stalls of products that help reduce plastic waste, food, refreshments and music. Come down, say hi, meet Tim, see the film, be surprised and inspired. Tickets are $8 at the door, or can be pre-purchased from our friends at Patagonia.
sceg film night – ‘addicted to plastic’
when it comes to plastic, “there are more things we don’t know than we do.” hmmm.
the surf coast energy group film season kicks off its season on friday night june 3rd with the documentary ‘addicted to plastic’.
‘addicted to plastic’ is a point-of-view style documentary that “encompasses three years of filming in 12 countries on 5 continents, including two trips to the middle of the Pacific Ocean where plastic debris accumulates. The film details plastic’s path over the last 100 years and provides a wealth of expert interviews on practical and cutting edge solutions to recycling, toxicity and biodegradability. These solutions – which include plastic made from plants – will provide viewers with a hopeful perspective about our future with plastic.” (from tiger moth films website) – click here to view a trailer of the film addicted to plastic trailer
