Where Activism Gets Inspired: Wild and Scenic Film Festival in Saint John @ New Brunswick Museum 
Sep 19 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Where Activism Gets Inspired: Wild and Scenic Film Festival comes to Saint John, Sept. 19

You won’t want to miss the line-up of inspirational films at our Wild and Scenic Film Festival; from a photographer’s Arctic trek in search of polar bears, to the wonders of innovation that nature has to offer humans through biomimicry, to New Brunswick’s own water defenders who helped to win the moratorium on hydraulic fracking.

Theatre space has been kindly donated by the New Brunswick Museum at 1 Market Square in Saint John on Thursday, Sept. 19. 

Our program starts at 6:00 p.m and includes special speakers –  the Conservation Council’s own Fundy Baykeeper Matt Abbot and Gulf of St. Lawrence Fisheries Specialist, Anne Faure. We are also excited to have Saint Johner, Johanne McInnis who is an alumna of the innovative 150-day climate outreach expedition documented in the film Canada C3 – Coast to Coast to Coast.

Stick around after the films and join us for a chat at our catered reception in the museum’s gorgeous marine exhibit.

Entry is by free-will donation. All donations will go to the the Conservation Council’s on-going efforts to promote practical solutions to environmental problems affecting New Brunswick. Read more about our work here.

This event was organized by the Conservation Council of New Brunswick with support from the New Brunswick Museum and the Wild & Scenic Film Festival.

Founded nearly two decades ago by the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL), the Wild & Scenic Film Festival travels to more than 250 communities around the globe each year to encourage citizens to learn more about what they can do to protect our environment. We look forward to seeing you Sept. 19!

WHAT REMAINS OF A WOMAN’S RIGHT TO CHOOSE?

U.S. reproductive health clinics are fighting to remain open.

Since 2010, 288 laws regulating abortion providers have been passed by state legislatures. In total, 44 states and the District of Columbia have measures subjecting abortion providers to legal restrictions not imposed on other medical professionals. Unable to comply with these far-reaching and medically unnecessary laws, clinics have taken their fight to the courts.

Earlier this year, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a landmark ruling (Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt) that prevents individual states from essentially outlawing abortion. Trapped follows the clinic workers and lawyers who were on the front lines of the battle to keep abortion safe and legal for millions of American women.
