Going Green Film Festival

The GOING GREEN FILM FESTIVAL (GGFF) encourages green filmmaking by rewarding filmmakers who have lessened their carbon footprint on the planet during production, used alternative transportation within the storyline of their films, or have created a film whose subject includes the environment, third world issues and the like. GGFF aims to spotlight those who are working to preserve our planet through entertainment and help inspire other filmmakers to adopt green practices, build greater awareness of social and environmental issues, and raise money for the Minorities in Broadcasting Training Program (MIBTP) (www.theBroadcaster.com), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization formed in 1992 to provide training opportunities to college graduates in TV/radio news reporting, news management and film/TV production.
 Eligible films can be any genre, but must be between 10 and 120 minutes in length and have been completed between 2008 and 2010. Films may be submitted online at www.goinggreenfilmfestival.com. The standard deadline is November 30th, 2009, with a submission fee of $55 and the final deadline is January 15, 2010, with a submission fee $65. Each submission fee includes a $20 donation towards Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). For every REC purchased, one megawatt-hour of renewable electricity is delivered to power grids. Join us in our quest to REthink, REplenish, REcommit.

Mariam's Amazing Race to Cannes and back to Cambodia: Day 19

user
  DAY NINETEEN I woke up early and was able to get on a WIFI signal to check my email. I sent one to my mom and let her know I didn't have to spend the night on the streets of London. Tom was still sleeping so I decided at 8am I should wake him up so I could get going. A cup of tea later and after a quick check of train timetables, we were on our way by bus to Liverpool Street Station. I had come full circle as we rode the same bus I took late that first night I arrived in London ...

Mariam's Amazing Race to Cannes and back to Cambodia: Day 18

user
  DAY EIGHTEEN The day started early with a bowl of cereal, yogurt and fresh fruit. Then it was time to pack the purple carpet bag again and head off to another train station. Wynford drove me to the station, where the price for a train ticket had gone from $35 Pounds if I had purchased the ticket online the night before, to $69. Since my credit card wasn't working, we walked over to the National Express bus office where a ticket to London was a mere $23, which I had in cash. Howe...

Mariam Arthur en route to Cannes day 6

user
The calm before the storm. One last day in Paris, and I thought the best way to spend it was to relax. After a breakfast of muesli and yogurt, I worked on the computer writing my Amazing Race diary and checking the Internet for more details about future days of the trip. Uli took me to the post office to send off postcards and we got bagel sandwiches for lunch. Mmmm, pastrami (not available anywhere in Cambodia)! Back at home I worked some more on the computer and took a nap. After pizza for...

Mariam Arthur en route to Cannes day 4

user
Thankfully I slept in until around 8am. By 9am, my bags were packed and waiting in the guestroom for me to come back after sightseeing. I have to say that one of the coolest things about being in England is that all the words I know as British (boot, bonnet, lift, loo, queue, etc.) and that I hear spoken occasionally by British friends in the US or Cambodia, are used by everyone all the time. This is an obvious fact, but to HEAR it is fun. Tom and I went straight to the Underground to ma...
