The Power of One Voice

A film exploring the impact of Rachel Carson's life and work

Great Turnout at Venture Outdoors Screening Event

We had a great crowd and a wonderful time at the Venture Outdoors screening of The Power of One Voice last night. Free beer provided by Victory for Venture Outdoors members, not to mention yummy popcorn with REAL butter (thanks to the super indie and classy Hollywood Theater in Dormont). The film was followed by a lengthy Q&A session with film’s executive producer, Patricia DeMarco, and me (Mark Dixon, director/producer). The POOV film created a great opportunity for Venture Outdoors to connect with members on a topic of concern to all, and we were delighted to be a part of it.

POOV Screenings Gather Momentum!

Dear Friends of The Power of One Voice, I am delighted to announce that The Power of One Voice now has five festival/conference acceptances!  Next week I will be attending the screening of POOV at the Woods Hole Film Festival, hosted on Cape Cod, MA (on July 29, 5pm). Carson is a bit of a local hero, and they recently built a beautiful statue to commemorate her connection to the place. Since most of you on this list live in Pittsburgh, I would be grateful if you would share this post with your friends in Massachusetts. Here’s a list of our other major acceptances: 2015 American Conservation Film Festival 2015 American Conservation Film Festival NORTH 2015 Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education Conference 2015 Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences Conference Pittsburgh’s own Green Building Alliance is also hosting a delightful POOV “Dinner and a Documentary” screening next week on July […]

POOV Accepted by 2015 AASHE Conference

We just received word that The Power of One Voice has been officially selected for screening at the 2015 Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education! This is the go-to destination for learning more about sustainability initiatives at colleges and universities around the country, and we believe that POOV is a great tool for supporting such efforts. We look forward to meeting all sorts of wonderful, caring, eco-minded participants at the conference in Minneapolis, MN in October, 2015. More details about the conference can be found here.

POOV Accepted into Woods Hole Film Festival

Listed as one of the 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World by Movie Maker Magazine, the Woods Hole Film Festival has accepted The Power of One Voice for their 2015 festival! We believe it is a great fit, as Carson connected deeply with the sea during her study at the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory. Festival screening information coming soon…

POOV Accepted into AESS 2015 Conference

The Power of One Voice will be screened at the 2015 Conference of the Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences! Hopefully we’ll connect with teachers, librarians, and administrators from around the country (and the world?) who would like to integrate POOV into their curriculum. Patricia DeMarco (POOV’s executive producer) will be attending the event in person.

POOV Accepted into American Conservation Film Festival – NORTH

The Power of One Voice was just accepted into its SECOND film festival (sort of*). The “northern” edition of the American Conservation Film Festival takes place at the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge in Massachusetts and begins on March 6. We screen on March 7 at 7pm. Not a bad time slot! Here’s a link to the schedule for the event: *We were already accepted into the primary ACFF in Shepherdstown, WV, and this is a “northern” extension of that festival. So a different event at a different time, sharing a common foundation and name.

Pittsburgh Premiere Was Packed!

Dear Friends of “The Power of One Voice,” I’m overjoyed to report that the Pittsburgh Premiere of “The Power of One Voice” was filled to the brim with eager filmgoers, chomping at the bit (not to mention a whole lot of great food) to learn from and be inspired by the story of Rachel Carson. I have to send out a huge thanks to all the people who showed up and helped out to make this event go so smoothly, and with such enthusiasm. It truly was an evening of abundance. Details below… We received the official Mayoral certification of having a “real event” when Mayor Bill Peduto showed up to meet and greet the crowd. He also shared a number of interesting facts about Rachel Carson as he helped us introduce the film. I found that he filled in some gaps in the story that I had to leave […]
