In the summer of 2011, Transition Toronto held a film contest for films depicting a livable, positive, post-carbon Toronto in the year 2031. We also held three film-making workshops taught by film-maker Greg Greene (endofsuburbia.com) and our then-steering-committee-member Josh Graham. We wanted people who had a vision of Toronto in 2031, but no film experience, to be able to enter the contest. The contest received a great response from the Toronto community as well as the media, including an interview on CBC's "Here and Now."
A number of great films were submitted, and they can be viewed on our Transition Art page. The winner was Mariko Uda, with her film, "The People in My Neighbourhood." Mariko was happy to receive her prize of a new HD camera and $200 cash.
Transition Toronto was very grateful to have locally-made visions of Toronto's positive post-carbon future. Thanks to all who participated! Let's keep teaching people that a post-carbon world can be a more healthful and happy one, and one that is worth working towards.
