November 1st

Our 15th Annual Celluloid Bainbridge Film Festival will begin with an opening night reception at The Marketplace at Pleasant Beach, a wonderful opportunity to meet the filmmakers and other professionals in the field, followed by a first-time release of Mark Kitchell’s  A FIERCE GREEN FIRE at The Historic Lynwood Theatre.

A Fierce Green Fire” is the first big-picture history of the environmental movement, grassroots and global activism spanning fifty years from conservation to climate change. It is narrated by Robert Redford, Ashley Judd, Van Jones, Isabel Allende and Meryl Streep.  Mark Kitchell an Academy Award nominee for “Berkeley in the Sixties” — a well-loved classic that has become one of the defining films about protest movements of the 1960s.  “A Fierce Green Fire” is also going to become a defining film — about the biggest movement of the 20th century and one that’s crucial to the 21st.

The film premiered at Sundance and has played over 150 theaters, festivals and non-theatrical engagements worldwide. Everybody loves the film, finds it valuable for education and inspiration, but also entertaining. It brings together all the major parts of environmentalism and connects them. It focuses on activism, people fighting to save their homes, their lives, the future — and succeeding against all odds.
