We’re on our way….

“We want to round up our information and present it in a fun and entertaining way so people can take it home and make it their own,” Lasseter said.

Tuesday’s meeting holds two purposes, she said, as a way to give anyone who would like to a chance to participate and to recruit local experts for panel discussions and sponsorships.

“What they come up with will be thought-provoking but also inspiring to people in the community to know there are things they can do to make things better in terms of environmental issues,” said Chris Bird, Alachua County Environmental Protection director.

Bird said he thinks educating people will give them the opportunity to direct their concerns in a constructive way, and he hope to one day expand the festival beyond the borders of Alachua County.

“There is certainly an opportunity to make this not only a state-wide film festival that attracts people,” he said, “but maybe beyond that it becomes known for its environmental documentaries.”
