Detroit Hives
Palmer Morse, Rachel Weinberg, Matthew Mikkelsen, Spruce Tone Films | 2019 | 6 min
East Detroit urban beekeepers Tim Paule and Nicole Lindsey are a young couple working to bring diversity to the field of beekeeping and create opportunities for young Detroit natives to overcome adversity. Detroit ranks fourth in the United States for the most vacant housing lots with well over 90,000 empty lots to date. In an effort to address this issue, Detroit Hives has been purchasing vacant lots and converting them into buzzing bee farms. Detroit Hives explores the importance of bringing diversity to beekeeping and rebuilding inner-city communities one hive at a time.

The Fight for Flight
Jason Whalen, Chris Zuker | 2018 | 16 min

Each year, millions of birds migrate through the Great Lakes. The Fight for Flight highlights this natural phenomenon and the stories of people who interact with these birds. As technology progresses, we are learning more about our impact during migration. The film shows the research, rehabilitation, and conservation involved in understanding and protecting this epic journey.

Wild Possibilities
Brady Holden, Jen Newlin, Catherine Waterston, Holden Films | 2018 | 12 min
This film highlights unique conservation efforts of five different land trusts in Oregon to help show and explain their value to their local communities.

Rewilding a Mountain
Trip Jennings, Sara Quinn, William Ripple, Balance Media | 2019 | 27 min

The sagebrush sea is a landscape of stark beauty and captivating wildlife, yet rapid desertification and extractive industries threaten this vast basin. But at Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge in Southeastern Oregon, a different story unfolds. New aspen explode alongside thriving creeks, migratory birds travel thousands of miles to nest in willow branches, and endangered sage grouse are recovering in the uplands. Rewilding a Mountain unravels an unsettling controversy that challenged the core identity of the West and follows a team of scientists who ask the question: what happened here?

Take Back the Harbor
Kristi Jacobson, Roger Ross Williams | 2018 | 40 min
On New York's Governors Island, an unprecedented program has an ambitious goal: to restore once-bountiful oysters and the environmental benefits they bring to New York Harbor. Directed by award-winning filmmakers Kristi Jacobson and Roger Ross Williams, Take Back the Harbor highlights inspiring teenage students and their teachers at The Harbor School, a remarkable public high school that teaches conservation and leadership of the waterways - including SCUBA diving, raising oyster larvae, operating and maintaining vessels, alongside math and English.
