Wednesday, October 4th | 7-9PM | Whistler Public Library
The theme for this Eco Flix screening is waste reduction! We’re super excited to be showing TWO Canadian documentaries: The Clean Bin Project & Fixed!
PART I – THE CLEAN BIN PROJECT:
Is it possible to live completely waste free? In this multi-award winning, festival favourite, partners Jen and Grant go head to head in a competition to see who can swear off consumerism and produce the least garbage Their light-hearted competition is set against a darker examination of the problem waste. Even as Grant and Jen start to garner interest in their project, they struggle to find meaning in their minuscule influence on the large-scale environmental impacts of our “throw-away society”. Described as An Inconvenient Truth meets Super Size Me, The Clean Bin Project features laugh out loud moments, stop motion animations, and unforgettable imagery. Captivating interviews with renowned artist, Chris Jordan and TED Lecturer Captain Charles Moore, make this film a fun and inspiring call to individual action that speaks to crowds of all ages.

PART 2 – FIXED!
Fixed! is a lighthearted look at the folks behind the Repair Café Toronto, a group of volunteers who will fix your broken items…for free. This short documentary won the 2016 Hot Docs Short Film Pitch competition.
Whistler’s environmental charity, AWARE in partnership with the Whistler Public Library launched EcoFlix in 2016. The movies screened, whether feature length or a mix of short films, will focus on a variety of environmental issues. Screenings will be followed by an audience discussion of the points raised, lessons learned, and opportunities for personal and community actions.
