Earth Film Festival Update

Due to Covid restrictions, the Grey Sauble Conservation Foundation is rescheduling the 5th Annual Earth Film Festival, which was to be held on October 8, 2021 at the Roxy Theatre in Owen Sound. The new date for the festival is Thursday May 16, 2022 and will follow many Earth Week activities to be held in April.

The film presented at the festival will be the Canadian production, “Flight of the Butterflies”. An interactive butterfly presentation by Audrey Armstrong and photographer, Willy Waterton, will also be featured at each presentation. Audrey Armstrong is a knowledgably researcher who has devoted many years to studying the migration and habitats of monarchs and has tagged hundreds of butterflies. Her presentation titled “Bruce Grey Monarchs” will be featured followed by the film.

Students from Grades 6 to 8 will be invited to attend two daytime presentations. Each classroom teacher will receive research material and a butterfly kit to teach students about gardens and native plants that attract monarch butterflies.

The evening presentation, which is open to the public, will include draw prizes, a silent auction, and conservation displays during a social hour held in the Roxy Lobby. Representatives from SK films will be in attendance for the evening presentation to share the filming skills and techniques used in “Flight of the Butterflies”.

All funds raised from the evening presentation will benefit local conservation projects and student education grants supported by the Grey Sauble Conservation Foundation.
