Reel Power is a collaborative of award winning documentary filmmakers, individual leaders and organizations working to address climate change and the long-term impact of destructive resource extraction. Through targeted and public screening events, strategy convenings, and hands on trainings, Reel Power is positioning films across the U.S. to promote and advance new energy solutions and a clean and just energy future.
To address climate change and dirty energy practices, Working Films has brought together sixteen groundbreaking film teams with cutting-edge grassroots organizations to create a dynamic film collaborative. Reel Power brings you stories from the frontline of our energy future that will get your community talking and taking action.
The stories of climate change are many and as different as each individual the world's energy crisis touches. From a woman in Kentucky fighting for her homeplace against the ravages of mountaintop removal, to a Gulf Coast community banding together to save their land and culture - Reel power films capture the voices of individuals and the strength of communities standing up for a just and sustainable future.

Join 350.org and their Fossil Free effort for colleges, cities, states, and churches to divest in the fossil fuel industry.
