We’ve been selected for the Cork Film Festival, running 6-13 November 2011. More information on screening dates and venues to follow.
We collaborated with renowned conservationist photographer Garth Lenz on Tipping Point, and his images from three separate shoots in the Athabasca River region appear in the documentary and on our website and printed materials. We are thrilled to learn that Garth’s work from this project has won First Place in Social Documentary Net’s “Ten Years After Nine Eleven: Searching For A 21st Century Landscape” competition. As part of the prize, his exhibition will be shown in New York at the powerHouse Arena from August 20th to September 16th, 2011.
Tipping Point had its World Premiere at the Reykjavik International Film Festival on 30 September.
The CBC television version – Tipping Point: The Age of the Oil Sands – received two nominations at the 26th annual Gemini Awards, on 30 August 2011: Best Director and the Donald Brittain Award for Best Social/Political Documentary.
