Festival Tip! GREENLIT was filmed on the set of THE RIVER WHY, also playing at the 2010 Salem Film Festival
Directed by Miranda Bailey
United States. 50 minutes.
FRI OCT 15 @ 8:30pm | The Grand Theater

Movie people are legendarily liberal and left leaning, particularly when it comes to the environment. Amidst the talk of global warming, and fuel prices, there is the "Green Initiative." Producer Miranda Bailey moves behind the camera to share with us exactly what it means for a project or institution to go green, and how it just might be more than you bargain for. Since Bailey is not in the business to lose money, she wanted to know if doing so would be any cheaper or easier, so she sets out to find out how easy it is to balance social responsibility and running a cost efficient film production. GREENLIT puts their commitment to the test as this spunky filmmaker (executive producer of THE SQUID AND THE WHALE) follows the production of THE RIVER WHY, starring Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights) as it attempts to keep an environmentally friendly set thanks to the supervision of a "green" consultant. What starts off with great enthusiasm quickly devolves in this insightful and hilarious film.
