Films For Action & The Bloom: Transformational Festivals Panel - "Practicing The New World"

2

Transformational Festivals Panel for “Practicing The New World” LIVE at 7:00pm April 29th following the LIVE MASS VIEWING of THE BLOOM PART II 

Part II of The Bloom explores how Transformational Festivals have become incubators and spaces for “Practicing The New World”, where festivals are produced using a model of CO-CREATION, utilizing an ethos of PARTICIPATION to create remarkable realities and MODELLING these life-altering experiences into ongoing projects back in their communities.

The Panel discussion will feature some of the founders/producers of leading Transformational Festivals asking the questions “How are Transformational Festivals providing ways for us to create and share the world we wish to live in?” and “How can Transformational Festival culture contribute to making social impact and positive change in the world?”

 

Panellists:

Stephen Brooks - Co-Founder of Envision Festival in Costa Rica and Permaculture Farmer/Founder of the Punta Mona Center for Sustainable Living and Education in Costa Rica since 1997.

David Casey - Founder and Co-producer of Cosmic Convergence Festival in Guatemala and Network Lead for Project Nuevo Mundo

Jonah Haas - Co-founder and Producer of Lucidity Festivals in California

Jeet-Kei Leung (moderator) - Director and Host of The Bloom Series

Why join Films For Action?

Goal: To rapidly transition to a just, ecologically sustainable, holistic way of living as fast as possible.

We believe the first step to achieve this goal should be an information delivery network that can amplify the impacts of all our efforts 1000 fold. 

Although Films For Action is centered around film - its true objective is the transformation of the world. This means moving away from the unsustainable paradigm we have now to a regenerative paradigm, as fast as humanly possible.  

Film is the medium of delivery -- the catalyst, the metabolizing agent to speed up, amplify and multiply the effects of every transition movement on the planet. And of course, "transition" contains it all - social justice, ecological regeneration, true democracy, egalitarian economics, universal empathy, less cultural insanity and more happiness and well-being.

All of these movements need a media ecosystem that supports this transition, rather than the media we have today which marginalizes it, ignores it, sanitizes it, suppresses it, or actively fights it. There is certainly good coverage across many different news outlets, and the quality and depth varies, but in terms of volume, the good stuff is easily lost in the deluge of superficial concerns.

Watch any network TV channel for 24 hours or read the newspaper for a week, and you will see what we mean. The dominant narratives which drive the national debate and become "common knowledge" is more often superficial, focused on symptoms rather than root causes, and reinforces the conventional "two sides" within the status quo. The lies and spin promoted by figures in power become well known, while voices that challenge and expand the range of debate rarely get heard. But most importantly, the level of repetition and volume of coverage is what counts. What gets covered day after day, and what gets covered once and is forgotten, or not covered at all? That's why we need a media movement that's dedicated to elevating the voices that aren't getting heard. We need media alternatives that make social change its primary focus. That's why Films For Action exists.

Ultimately, we're just one star in this growing constellation of new media, but we aim to do our part by cultivating the best video library dedicated to transition online, and we hope you'll join us
