Climate Change Filmmaker Trying To Raise $100,000 For Awareness-Raising Tour

Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning filmmaker Josh Fox has made and launched another film – this time about climate change. The title is HOW TO LET GO OF THE WORLD AND LOVE ALL THE THINGS CLIMATE CAN’T CHANGE and it was shown at the Sundance Film Festival. Now, he has a Kickstarter campaign to raise $100,000 to get the film shown in 100 US cities and towns in areas with links to fossil fuels.

joshfoxThis tour has already started, with stops in the fracking town Vernal, Utah, and in Moab. Activists Tim DeChristopher and James Cromwell have supported the tour with appearances. Actors Mark Ruffalo and Ed Begley, Jr. have also supported the film.

The funds from the Kickstarter campaign will be used to show the film for free in areas where there is fossil fuel infrastructure. Q & A sessions after the film are part of the tour as well.

As of March 17, the campaign had almost $70,000 pledged, but it ends on March 21st, so there isn’t much time left. For the minimum $5 pledge, you get a thank you in the film’s final credits. For $10, you get the same with recognition on two websites. For $25, you get the same with some exclusive video footage. These are just a few of the pledge amounts – for the larger pledges, you can get physical gifts such as DVDs.

If you haven’t heard of Josh Fox, he is the director and writer of Gasland Parts I and II, which won an Emmy and was nominated for an Academy Award. It also won an award at the Sundance Film Festival. “We’ve already warmed the Earth one degree – we already have another .5 degrees in the pipeline,” he said in an interview with Democracy Now! His climate change film will air on HBO in June.

Climate change is obviously a difficult subject to make a film about because it touches on so many aspects of human life and a variety of environmental issues.
