Cape Breton Nova Scotia filmmaker Neal Livingston is pleased to advise that, 100 Short Stories has won the Energy Award, by Cinema Verde, one of the top 6 environmental film festivals in the USA.
100 Short Stories is Livingston’s first feature film.
Energy Award: 100 Short Stories (Canada, 68:30 min) Directed by Neal Livingston A collage ranging from the serious to the humorous. This original and engaging documentary tackles opinions regarding governance, public policy, and questions what are sound ideas socially, environmentally and culturally in today’s society. It’s about predatory capitalism, renewable energy, stopping the frackers, and contemporary life in Atlantic Canada. The director, Neal Livingston, is a well-known Nova Scotian documentary filmmaker and artist – as well as renewable energy practitioner, developer and policy advocate – who calls the film partly autobiographical.
“ I am very pleased to have received this award for my first feature length documentary, and that a film festival in the USA, Cinema Verde, could relate to and appreciate my film.” said Livingston.
Livingston said, “ I hope this film helps to raise awareness about other serious environmental issues in Nova Scotia that the Nova Scotia Government is refusing to take actions to reform. Getting Nova Scotia off coal burning for electricity in a timely manner and when affordable alternatives exist now, is inexcusable not take action on. Banning clear cutting of forests is an equally important issue that the government is refusing to act on, which is completely against the publics demand to protect forest ecosystems, and establish value based forestry, versus the current lowest value focus of government policy.”
“Change = Jobs ” said Livingston.
