A New Economy

Transitions Film Festival

16 February 2017 - 28 May 2017

A New Economy presents a fresh alternative to business as we know it by demonstrating how a grassroots movement of new enterprises can tackle complex social and environmental challenges.

The film showcases a range of businesses, including a small craft-brew co-op, a peer-to-peer open hardware lab, and an urban agriculture social enterprise, and explores how life-changing businesses can be created without huge amounts of capital or support from wealthy sponsors.

Directed by Trevor Meier and featuring Gar Alperovitz, Richard Sennett, John Fullerton, Jessi Kate Schlinger (Red Victorian), Tiberius Brastaviceanu (Sensorica) Michael Ableman (Sole Food Street Farms), Sabina Ali (Thorncliffe Park Women’s Committee), Ben Knight (Loomio), and the dynamic Canadian Borealis String Quartet.
