Featured Films

  • Koa Talking to Me – This National Park Service film follows a Hawaiian man’s love for one of the rarest and most threatened trees in the world. Junior’s connection with koa trees on his native island compels him to conserve and honor the spirt of fallen trees that would normally be wasted. His way of using the trees connects him to one of the oldest Hawaiian traditions.
  • Seas of Trees – Seas Of Trees is a tree-planting non-profit rooted in Telluride Colorado with the mission to plant as many trees as possible with as many youth as we can! Seas Of Trees won the EPA Presidents Environmental Youth Award in 2021.
  • Yoshino Ringyo –  Yoshino has been the breadbasket of Japan’s forestry for 500 years. Due to globalization and shifts in culture, however, the forestry industry has nearly collapsed and small villages are reliant on forestry are becoming ghost towns. This film explores the lives of Japanese foresters striving to keep this centuries-old tradition alive, determined not to be the village’s last.
  • Treeline – The film brings extraordinary forests in British Columbia, Japan and Nevada ‘to life’ through cinematic exploration of playful, yet powerful experience of gliding through each forest on snow. We accompany scientists who translate what the oldest trees have to teach us, illuminating the reciprocal bond between humanity and nature —  a relationship we can’t survive without.
