Bioregional Living: A Permaculture Guide to Food and Energy Independence | Andrew Faust (2020)


Andrew Faust's inspiring vision for greater food and energy resilience. This is a 30-minute guide to feeding and providing power for our communities in ways that are truly regenerative, improving the quality of life and biodiversity on Earth, for our children to inherit.

Faust shows how easy it could be to grow all our food locally and produce all our power with local renewable energy, if we have the knowledge and will to make it happen.

Designing for Food & Energy Security in the Rondout watershed, a sub-watershed of the Hudson River, Andrew Faust shows how to create truly resilient communities while turning around climate change and solving food, hunger and distribution issues that are inherently created by the industrial systems of producing Food and Energy.

Films For Action is a library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations, while 99% of our library is free to access and always will be. The pay-per-view films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patrons, we partner with filmmakers and distributors to provide access to a growing number of films that are normally pay-per-view. With just 23 highly curated films at the moment, it's basically a mini "Netflix for world changers," but its main function is to support the library as a whole.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker or distributor looking to collaborate, feel free to get in touch!
