Just finished helping out at the Gaia Film Festival, and it was an amazing way to spend a weekend. While there were some great films that played, what was probably the most important film of the weekend (and my personal favorite) has to be Fields of Fuel. I really think that Fields of Fuel has the possibility to do for transportation and the biofuels industry what An Inconvenient Truth did for climate change. It’s already won several film festival awards (including Audience Favorite at the Gaia Film Festival), and according to rumor, it’s up for an Academy Award. It’s due out on dvd in November, but keep an eye out for it in various cities in the meantime, and if you get a chance to see it, then do.

    hey Todd,
    I agree with you that Fields of fuel was the most important film during the festival. When i should up by the mic. I felt so good about the film that i didn’t even pay attention to the butterfly’s in my stomach. I think that what i had to say had a big impact on some of the people in the theater. thank you for posting a blog about the fest I had a good time helping out and we should do this again next year.
