The mission of the Imagination Film Festival (IFF) is to empower young leaders to create and organize green film events that inspire and mobilize their communities to action.

IFF recognizes the power of local community action, and gives young leaders the tools they need to connect to specific campaigns that address environmental issues. We offer critically acclaimed films to educate and engage audiences to take action. Youth leaders engage their audiences to move from passive citizens to active participants in local sustainability campaigns and programs, such as community gardening projects, restoration efforts, climate action campaigns and green energy cooperatives.

NEW MODEL CREATED BY HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT IN SAN FRANCISCO: Schuyler Schwartz (a passionate high school student in San Francisco, CA) spearheads the IFF program in her school. See June 2011 article about Schuyler’s work with IFF. http://www.bohemian.com/bohemian/06.08.11/greenzone-1123.html

Schuyler created her own unique model for screening IFF films by approaching the green club student heads of 3 other high schools. The four high schools worked together, along with IFF staff and volunteers to launch the Imagination Film Festival. University High School, Drew HS, International HS and Urban HS are working collaboratively to screen critically acclaimed documentaries.

Imagination Film Festival (IFF) is designed to inspire and engage people to participate in a great social movement – the movement to live more sustainably. We support youth leaders to present films with important, heartfelt themes to diversified audiences in communities throughout the nation. IFF’s intention is to encourage people of all ages to become involved in local campaigns and projects, to further awareness and understanding of critical issues and their impact, and to develop and apply the skills, knowledge and community resources needed to live more sustainably.

For this effort Natural Capitalism Solutions and Reel Community Action have teamed up to bring films about grassroots heroes to a wide audience, to help facilitate sustainability projects, green jobs and other programs nationwide. Our “Film Festival in a Box” format will enable us to deliver all of the materials and organizational information communities need to easily host a film festival – including a list of appropriate local partners, marketing materials, films, schedules, guest speakers and potential sponsors.
