From tigers to elephants, oceans and deserts to arctic regions, with Disney and BBC filmmakers, from what goes into the water we drink and the food we eat—the first Our Planet Environmental Film Festival has it all!
The much-anticipated launch of the Our Planet Environmental Film Festival is finally here, and the Our Planet team is more than ready to deliver. As environmental warriors they are fighting for the earth, armed with a whole selection of exciting yet educational documentaries. The environmental film festival has one main purpose and that is to raise funds, which will be used to develop a plastic bottle recycling initiative for St Lucia. Taking a look around the island its no secret that we have a problem with plastic bottles littering the shoreline and riverbanks, blocking drains and generally making the streets look unclean. It is said that it takes approximately 450 years for a plastic bottle to decompose! So the problem will not go away by itself.
The saying goes “no man is an island” and we cannot always do things alone so Our Planet would like to thank all their sponsors and supporters; British High Commission, LIME, LUCELEC, Sandals, SLASPA, West Indies Shipping & Trading, Calabash Tv, CFL, DBS, JQ amongst others.
The Our Planet team assures an enjoyable film experience, with some great photography that will blow you away. So if you missed this weekend’s showcase, make sure you don’t miss next week’s film “The man who stopped the Desert” filmed by Mark Dodd from the BBC.
