BEVERLY, MA–( EMWNews – April 1, 2008) – Premiering on Saturday and Sunday, April 5th

(http://www.ecofilmfestival.us), featuring nine award-winning films and

aiding local conservation. Among those appearing will be Salem Sound

Coastwatch, Groom Energy, Daylight Communications, Healthlink, and Solar

Now.

Special appearances include the filmmakers Heather Barrie of Nashville, TN

presenting her film “Kilowatt Ours” and Liz Argo of “The View and the

Vision” featuring a documentary on the wind farms in Denmark. Premiering at

the Festival will also be the newly released film, “The Unforeseen.”

In addition, there will be a special Gala Party Saturday night to celebrate

renewable energy and to raise funds for Solar Now, the oldest solar site of

its size in the United States installed by the Carter Administration in

1981. The Gala at the Wylie Conference Center will feature the premiere of

“Kilowatt Ours” followed by cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and dancing.
