Describe the project (This description appears in your map point. Insert a photo if you choose by selecting the "tree" icon): 

The first annual Earth Day Film Festival (EDFF) took place in Craik, Saskatchewan on April 25 – 27, 2008.  It was inspired and proposed by Kelly Reinhardt and Bridget Haworth of boilingfrog.ca, and heartily supported by the Craik Sustainable Living Project (CSLP). The festival is committed to raising awareness and taking action on environmental issues. Besides showcasing six eco-films, the EDFF provided dynamic discussions, a networking fair, and workshop. The films were very well received - inspiring and motivating festival goers to become more active in environmental and local food issues. The EDFF and the CSLP provided nutritious and delicious meals from local food  - eating local makes a huge positive contribution to the environment while strengthening our health, social connections and local economies. The workshop – “Eating Local, Going Organic” was hosted by Amy Jo Ehman. People at the workshop shared their experiences in acquiring local and/or organic food, and discussing any obstacles and opportunities found along the way. 32 different organizations, artists, healers and small businesses became involved through sponsorship, tabling, funding, food, promotion, etc. The goal was to bring together people from across the province who are active in environmental issues, and those who want to learn more. More than 100 people attended; many thrilled with the films, food and excellent networking during the event.
