Upper Valley Climate Change & Sustainability Film Series

Sustainable Woodstock and Pentangle Arts Council host a monthly free screening of films and documentaries focused on Climate Change and Sustainability. We do this as a way to foster—in a fun and relaxed environment—a broader awareness of the wide-ranging issues impacting our planet and our future. We often facilitate a panel discussion after the film to explore the issues presented and how we, as individuals and communities, can engage in becoming part of the solution. The series is free and open to all. Donations are welcome.

(Left to Right) Brian Stroffolino, Sylvia Davatz, and Ruth Fleishman lead a post film panel discussion.

Location

We screen these films at the Woodstock Town Hall theater. A historic theater with lofty ceilings, lots of seating a state-of-the-art projection and sound system. The Theater is located at 31 the Green Woodstock, VT.

Schedule

Screenings normally take place on the 4th Tuesday of the month, which some exceptions due to holidays or scheduling conflicts.
