CAMDEN — Maine Conservation Voters will host a film screening and panel discussion of Saving Snow, Saturday, Feb. 8, at 2:30 p.m., in the Picker Room, at Camden Public Library.
Saving Snow is a 53-minute documentary exploring how winter recreation towns like Camden are coping with theii changing climate. Shorter, warmer winters are more than just a frustration for winter sports enthusiasts, according to Voters, in a news release. They mean lost income for the many towns and small businesses that depend on winter tourism and recreation to stay afloat.
“With all of my films, the goal is to make climate change concrete,” said filmmaker Diogo Freire, of Adaptation Now, in the release. “I try to find specific examples of communities that are being affected—and also show how they’re responding.”
Saving Snow highlights individuals and organizations working to reduce their communities’ impacts on the environment and raise awareness of the need for climate action.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with filmmaker Diogo Freire, Camden Town Manager Audra Caler-Bell, Coastal Mountains Land Trust director Ian Stewart, and MCV’s Director of Policy & Partnerships, Kathleen Meil.
