Kick Off, Symposium and Sunshine

We're off to a great start here in Telluride, and if you weren't able to make it to the festival this year we want to make sure you know what we're up to!We kicked things off with beautiful weather and great food on Thursday night for the Filmmaker's Dinner. Then Friday we dove in head first with our symposium. A special thanks to all of our symposium speakers and our emcee, Josh Bernstein.Extinction Crisis was a difficult subject to tackle, but the symposium ended up leading to some moving, educational and inspirational discussions. Here are some of our favorite quotes from the symposium:

"Documentaries are the most powerful weapon in the world... I call them weapons of mass construction - Louie Psihoyos"If we're not aware of what we're doing, we're not going to change our action" - Maya Lin"Don't give up, cause despair sucks" - Rick Ridgeway

Here's to a successful day two!Remember, you can keep up with us in real time over on our Twitter feed and our Facebook page!
