2014 Film Fest
Over 100 concerned citizens came out to the Clean Air-Clean Water Film Festival in uptown Charlotte on February 25, 2014 to watch segments of three documentaries relating to air and water quality. Participants viewed 20-minute clips of two films, Living Downstream and Carbon Nation and the entire short film of the North Carolina produced A Message from the Marcellus: What NC Needs to Know About Fracking and the Natural Gas Industry. Each film was followed by remarks from panelists: Mecklenburg County Health Department’s Medical Director Stephen Keener, Catawba Riverkeeper Sam Perkins, Clean Air Carolina’s Executive Director June Blotnick, and Dr. RoseMary Seymour. The Charlotte Observer’s Energy and Environment reporter, Bruce Henderson was planning to be a panelist but was detained by a deadline for his continuing coverage of Duke Energy’s recent coal ash spill into the Dan River.
