Testimonials

  • “A wonderful film! One tends to think of the entertainment industry (and film in particular) as being a hot-bed of like minded, socially conscious activists, and here the principles meet the hard realities of practice. The project which the film highlights - greening a film shoot - brings clearly to the forefront, with humor and adventure, the myriad difficulties involved in all attempts to integrate environmentally conscious action into ANY work place, even among those committed to social change. The opportunity to screen this film and to engage with Lauren Selman, the environmental consultant at the heart of the project, was wonderful and educational and has sparked many conversations about the devices and desires surrounding environmental action. Strongly recommended! Bring Greenlit to your theater/campus/community, and begin the discussion.”

  • “I used Greenlit with my 12th grade Economic students along with a variety of resources including "The Tragedy of the Commons" in a unit examining the environmental impact of externalities and intermediates normally excluded in GDP calculation. The film led to a lively discussion efficacy and importance of factoring environmental impact into final product cost and eventually into national accounts. The film proved a very provocative teaching tool that I will use annually.”

  • “Our screening of Greenlit at Sustainable Saturdays at the Silver Lake Library was very enjoyable. The audience, made up of some of our regular attendees along with a number of new people working in the movie industry, found it informative and entertaining. There were many loud laughs throughout the screening and lots of questions for Miranda and Lauren afterwards. A great event. Thank you!”

  • “Greenlit was educational and entertaining and really showed the complexities of greening the entertainment industry. I learned you really need to buy in and invest for effective change because people often resist change and need to see the benefit of it. ”

  • “Greenlit was awesome. It definitely raised a lot of issues amongst all who watched the movie. The Q & A was very exciting and, eventually, transcended the entertainment industry challenges and led to our personal issues while trying to be green. Great film. Thank you very much.”

  • “We were thrilled to screen Greenlit for students and the community at the Pollock Theater with UC Santa Barbara's Carsey-Wolf Center for Environmental Media. Our Q&A with Lauren Selman was rich in content, and an especially powerful experience for both the Environmental Studies and Film & Media Studies students in attendance. Thank you for bringing creativity and humor to this exploration of sustainability, both are invaluable in addressing the issues!”
