The Economics of Happiness, Sunday May 20
Both hard‐hitting and inspiring, ‘The Economics of Happiness’ demonstrates that millions of people across the world are already engaged in building a better world – that small scale initiatives are happening on a large scale. The film shows that countless initiatives are united around a common cause: rebuilding more democratic, human scale, ecological and local economies – the foundation of an ‘economics of happiness’.

The Power of Community, Sunday May 27
Cuba, an isolated island nation, rebuilt its quality of life following the collapse of cheap oil, supplied by the former Soviet Union. This fascinating and empowering film shows how communities pulled together, created solutions, and ultimately thrived in spite of their decreased dependence on imported energy. http://www.powerofcommunity.org Running time 53min
Urban Roots, Sunday June 3
Urban Roots is the next documentary from Tree Media. Produced by Leila Conners (The 11th Hour) and Mathew Schmid and directed by Mark MacInnis, the film follows the urban farming phenomenon in Detroit. Urban Roots is a timely, moving and inspiring film that speaks to a nation grappling with collapsed industrial towns and the need to forge a sustainable and prosperous future. Running time 40min
Dirt: The Movie, Sunday June 10
DIRT! The Movie, directed and produced by Bill Benenson and Gene Rosow, takes you inside the wonders of the soil. It tells the story of Earth's most valuable and underappreciated source of fertility--from its miraculous beginning to its crippling degradation. Dirt brings to life the environmental, economic, social and political impact that the soil has. It shares the stories of experts from all over the world who study and are able to harness the beauty and power of a respectful and mutually beneficial relationship with soil. http://www.dirtthemovie.org Running time 90min
End of Suburbia, Sunday June 17
Oil depletion and the collapse of the American dream: Since World War II North Americans have invested much of their newfound wealth in suburbia. It has promised a sense of space, affordability, family life and upward mobility. As the population of suburban sprawl has exploded in the past 50 years, so too has the suburban way of life become embedded in the American consciousness. http://www.endofsuburbia.com Running time 78min
Escape From Suburbia, Sunday June 24
Escape from Suburbia is a rich interplay on the subtle relationships between the potential solutions each person faces as the demand for fossil fuels outstretches supply. With issues such as the energy crisis, neighbourhood gardens and the collapse of the American way-of-life, it would be easy for the independent film to use its 90-minute running time to whirl into a rant that leaves the viewer shocked and the director sounding like an eco-crazy - but the result of Escape from Suburbia is the complete opposite. Running time 95min
