AFRAID OF THE DARK
OYVIND MIKKELSEN SAUGERUD
Series: FOREIGN SHORT, AGES 6 -12
Description - This is a small film in every way. Limited in space and time, dealing with the oh so insignificant troubles of a father whose son refuses to go to sleep.

How we handle it might not always be the best way, neither for the kids nor for ourselves. The story is inspired by the classic bedtime story "Can�t you sleep, Little bear?" In Norwegian with English subtitles.

YOUNG VOICES FOR THE PLANET: 10 SHORT SUCCESS STORIES
LYNNE CHERRY
Series: STUDENT DOCUMENTARY, AGES 10-18
Description - Young Voices for the Planet is a compilation of 10 stories of youth solutions to the climate crisis. The youth in the YVFP films learn about climate change, are concerned, and take action to reduce CO2. Their passion, commitment and earnestness give the films an emotional punch: they move adult audiences to tears, but they affect young people differently empowering them to act. The films provide replicable templates; reduce CO2 emissions, save the environment, save money, save humanity. For example, Dreaming in Green documents 4 students who learn that Miami will suffer serious economic loss from sea level rise; their school energy audit reduces C02 emissions and saves the school $53,000 in energy bills. In Plant for the Planet, 11-year-old Felix plants millions of trees to take up CO2. Olivia's Birds and the Oil Spill documents 11-year-old Olivia who raises $200,000 to clean oiled birds after the BP spill and speaks to her congressmen about supporting renewable energy. And in We Sing Out! , the Rivertown kids sing with folk legend Pete Seeger and speak out musically; about a renewable-energy-powered future. Climate change can be doom and gloom but these films are about HOPE and EMPOWERMENT.
