Shift happens: Environmental film festival comes to Perth

By Desmond Devoy, InsideOttawaValley, November 6, 2019 This is one green screen that does not use comic book action heroes. “Shift Happens” is an environmental film series "on the impact of humans on our planet and what we can do about it,” according to organizer Dr. Shelley Ball, who runs her organization, Biosphere Environmental Education (BEE), between Perth and Westport.

“I’ve seen all of the films in advance,” said Ball, during a telephone interview from the BEE office on Friday, Nov. 1. The idea for the film series “was born out of a casual conversation with friends,” about their favourite environmental films.

The five screenings all take place on Saturdays at the Studio Theatre in Perth and are put on by BEE and Three Green Peas.
