H2Oil Interactive Panel

October 2, 2009 - 12:30am

This year the Edmonton Film Fest will be featuring the film H2Oil. It is a film that asks: What is more important, water or oil? Will the quest for profit overshadow efforts to protect public health and the environment in Canada's richest province? 

In addition many local organizations will be co-hosting an interactive panel with the director Shannon Walsh,  George Poitras of the Mikisew Cree First Nation, Eriel Deranger of the Rainforest Action Network, MacDonald Stainsby of Oil Sands Truth and Heather Milton Lightning of the Indigenous Environmental Network.

The plenary will address the issues raised by the film screening H2Oil. Speakers will address the impacts of tar sands development, talk about organizing strategies to slow and stop the Tar Sands, and give informational perspectives to the film based on their first hand experiences.

Where: University of Alberta – TELUS Centre 150 (see map)
What: Follow-up Interactive Panel to EIFF showings of H2Oil
When: October 1st at 6:30pm
