When: Tuesday, November 5, 2013, 6-9 p.m. (Registration at 5:30 p.m.)
The Green Omaha Coalition invites you to the Reel to Real Film Festival at Aksarben Cinema for an evening of innovative films and lively conversation. The festivities begin with a networking hour complemented by superb appetizers from Jimi D’s.
Amateur film recognition
We’ll be screening a short film from a local group of Girl Scouts emphasizing what sustainability means to them.

An assembly of panelists share how Innovation in Food Systems makes a difference. Participate in this interractive discussion featuring:
Susan Whitfield – No More Empty Pots

GE FOCUS FORWARD Short Films/Big Ideas
The evening will finish with our featured film, GE FOCUS FORWARD. A partnership between GE and cinelan, GE FOCUS FORWARD commissioned 30 three-minute films. The creative brief was simple: tell a story about an innovator or a world-changing idea, and do it in about 180 seconds. The series has been honored by the Clio, Webby and Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards. An even greater measure of their success is the way these stories make people feel-inspired.
