Halton Green Screens
Halton Green Screens is founded in part by our very own CEO, Jeff Knoll.
Halton Green Screens shows environmental films in communities in the Halton Region (Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton, and Oakville) followed by a discussion, a guest speaker, or a workshop. Our goal is to raise awareness of environmental issues and inspire people to take individual and collective action for the environment.
The Halton Green Screens Schools Program offers environmental programming in schools throughout Halton Region, using film as a tool to inspire environmental stewardship. Get in touch to book a screening!
Our program is currently funded by an Ontario Trillium Foundation grant.

Our feature film for the evening, The Milky Way, shows how women can reclaim their birthright and restore the nursing mother archetype. More than a breastfeeding promotion film, this is a film by, for, and about women. It is about the knowledge that inherently resides in every woman, how to access that knowledge and how to trust what we already know. It is a film that inspires women to say, “I can do that! I want to do that!”
The feature will be preceded by the short film “Lactaboobiephobia”. People around the world who ask women to “cover up” or “be more discreet” while breastfeeding suffer from this condition. Now even breastfeeding women suffer from this and feel self conscious or are afraid that someone will ask them to cover up! Nursing blankets are now a “thing” and are sold everywhere!

MORE THAN HONEY, a documentary by the Swiss filmmaker Marcus Imhoof, is looking into the fascinating world of bees, showing small family beekeepers (including the beekeeper of ERSTE Foundation beehive, Heidrun Singer) and industrialized honey farms. MORE THAN HONEY is a film on the relationship between mankind and honeybees, about nature and about our future. Honeybees show us that stability is just as unhealthy as unlimited growth, that crises and disasters are triggering evolution and that salvation sometimes comes from a completely unexpected direction.
