About the Halton Hills EcoFilm Fest

Environmental Topics

The Halton Hills EcoFilm Fest is a grass roots organization whose purpose is to promote
environmental education in the community through the presentation of exceptional
environmental documentaries based on five topics: Climate Change, Healthy Living, Water
Preservation, Earth Care and Biocultural Diversity.

The Halton Hills EcoFilm Fest is dedicated to advancing the four sustainability pillars of cultural
vibrancy, economic prosperity, environmental health and social wellbeing envisioned in the
Town of Halton Hills Community Sustainability Strategy.

The Halton Hills EcoFilm Fest is committed to building a strong community eco-consciousness
by involving Indigenous teachings and by networking with other like-minded environmental
organizations to share expertise and motivate actions toward local and global eco-concerns by
hosting Table Talks before and after EcoFilm screenings.

Table Talks

 

Each documentary is enriched by having local community members who have an expertise or an action related to the film offer a Table Talk and Display to tell about their initiative. At each screening there may be 5-7 Table Talks which ignite conversation, promote a communal environmental consciousness, and spawn actions toward local and global concerns. 

Please contact us if you are interested in hosting a Table Talk.
