H2Oil Interactive Panel

October 4, 2009 - 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Follow-up Interactive Panel to CIFF showings of H2Oil


This year the Calgary 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, and MacDonald Stainsby of Oil Sands Truth.

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.

Why? Because we need to understand the impacts Tar Sand developments are having on surrounding communities and start organizing to take action NOW!

The Panel is sponsored by:

Calgary Activist Network, H2Oil, Council of Canadians, Greenpeace, Indigenous Environmental Network, Sierra Club Prairie, Rainforest Action Network, Alberta Environment Network and Public Interest Alberta
