SAVING PARADISE Screens at Buzzards Bay Film Festival

SAVING PARADISE Screens at Buzzards Bay Film Festival

We’re pleased to announce that SAVING PARADISE will screen at the Buzzards Bay Film Festival!

We’re glad to be part of a program that showcases the environment and culture around Buzzards Bay, from features films to 1-minute cellphone videos. Although our mini-doc isn’t set on the Bay per se, it addresses a major water quality issue that affects the entire East Coast: nutrient pollution from our septics, fertilized lawns and road runoff that is causing sensitive estuaries to degrade.

Saving Paradise producer Elise Hugus talks about the series, with Buzzards Bay Coalition director Mark Rasmussen and a fellow filmmaker at the Buzzards Bay Film Festival.

Please join us on Saturday, Nov. 16 at Gallery X in New Bedford, starting at 8 PM!

In addition, we will be taking part in A Watershed Event, which will wrap up the first half and introduce the next steps of the Cape Cod Commission’s 208 plan. This has already proven to be an incredible exercise in democracy, in which stakeholders from across the Cape have been working to come up with solutions to our shared wastewater problems.

SAVING PARADISE will screen at this event, which will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 13 at the Cape Museum of Art in Dennis from 6 to 8 PM.

We look forward to answering your questions about the film (and the next segment in the series) at both events!
