In 1971, an eclectic group of young pioneers – Canadian hippie journalists, photographers, musicians, scientists, and American draft dodgers – set sail from Vancouver to Amchitka, Alaska in an attempt to stop Richard Nixon's atomic bomb tests. This first protest, followed by whale and seal campaigns coupled with a canny use of media, captured the world's imagination. The modern green movement was founded and Greenpeace was its name.
Based on the writings and journals of founder Bob Hunter, and using never before seen archive footage, How To Change The World is an intimate portrait of the group’s original members and of activism itself. They agreed that a handful of people could change the world - they just couldn’t always agree on how to do it.
The 17th annual Salt Spring Film Festival will take place March 4th-6th, at GISS (Gulf Islands Secondary School). Our submissions deadline has passed and we're now hard at work choosing the program of great documentaries we'll be showing next year.
During the Festival weekend the Salt Spring Film Festival Society hosts a Social Justice Bazaar. Many local organizations gather to educate the audience of their activities in the social fabric of Salt Spring Island.
The Salt Spring Film Festival is a non-profit charitable society incorporated in 2008, whose mission is to educate, inspire and activate our community through a festival of documentary film from Canada and around the world.
