  1. Hello
    It is good to see you promoting environmental films so that people can learn and understand what is happening to our world.
    I was sent the Google alert because the Reel Earth Environmental Film Festival is a yearly festival in The Manawatu, New Zealand. We have just completed our seventh season and is the southern hemispheres leading environmental film festival. We are promoting it on a national and global level.

    Are you showing your films to students at the university or the general public as well and are you intending to do it on a yearly basis? Is this your first year?

    I hope you have a good turnout and that people take on board the message about the environment.



  2. Dear all,
    We, the team of Department of Youth welfare, Cochin University of Science and Technology is extremely happy to see your comment and motivation for our humble beginning. REEL EARTH, EFFC – 2011,is organized first time in the campus, officially inaugurated on 08th August by Hon. Vice Chancellor. We are getting wide response from students, staff and local community to the screening. The idea for such a programe stemmed from a monsoon camp – monsoon madness – organised by us. Of course, i visited your site while planning the festival and decided adapt your REEL EARTH title here because it communicates the theme most effectively. Thank you for your motivation and positive support.

    Students, staff and local people are welcome to the screening. Further, we are planning to show the same things in schools nearby on request. we have received a lot of requests now. I hope it will be a great event and we may be instrumental to spread environmental messages to small kids in right way. Thanks to all… this is a great response.. thanks for your support… expecting further suggestions and support.

    Dr. P.K Baby
