SustainFloyd Film Series

Since 2011 SustainFloyd has been showing a series of documentary films relating to our mission. It’s one way to get enliven the local discussion of issues relating to securing a sustainable future.

Our film committee considers ideas for films submitted by board and community members and tries to offer documentaries covering a wide rage of topics. Typically we show 6 films a year, 3 in the spring and three in the fall, each designed as the basis of a community gathering and discussion. Our hope is that these events offer ideas and hope of ways that both individuals and community groups can make an impact.

Spring 2017 Film Series

We are planning another series of documentary films in Spring 2017. They will continue to be screened on Wednesday evenings at the Floyd Country Store at 206 South Locust Street in Floyd. We are grateful to the owners of the country store for their flexibility in allowing us to use this wonderful community space.

The films for the season will be The Messenger, a documentary about the plight of our songbirds, Freightened, an investigation into the real costs of global supply chains, and In Search of Balance, a look at the relationship between food, the natural environment and our health. These films will be screened in March, April and May. Keep an eye on our event calendar for details.

All of our films are proceeded by a community pot-luck dinner and followed with a discussion. Pot lucks start at 6:00pm followed by the film at 6:30pm
