''Coronavirus is both a symptom of the problematic globalised economy and an important signal that things need to change. Emergency short-term measures to contain the virus also have a positive impact on decimated global ecosystems. Crisis can be an opportunity and adopting some of these measures in perpetuity could help to avert the worst case runaway climate scenarios and help to maintain the planetary conditions that humanity is adapted to.''
1. A less industrial future is feasible
2. A massive contraction in demand for cruises and aviation
3. Shift towards more resilient local economies
4. End the trade in wild animals
5. End the horror of factory farming

5 ways coronavirus could help humanity survive the ecological crisis
Matt Mellen, 3 Mar 2020
This pandemic is a further wake up call things need to radically change and many of the emergency measures help the planet too.

This community is so special and inspiring for me because as a creative woman, we are extremely underrepresented in this industry. However, the independent filmmaker who is ironically a male, Victor Nuñez, stands up for women in film. He wrote and directed the 1993 arthouse film Ruby in Paradise, and its finally out on VOD platforms! The main character ruby, young Ashley Judd, feels as though there is something more for her out there and is determined to reach her maximum self on her own terms. She stumbles into unwise intimate relationships and financial burden, that build her character as a brave independent woman. These real human behavioral patterns throughout the film and sheds light on how vulnerable women can be when there alone still trying to figure their own identity out, instead of a successful man that comes in and saves the day. Here’s the trailer on youtube:
Love that this page is focused on women in film! It is so important to highlight the positive role that women have in film regardless of their jobs on the film. I have been looking for strong women leads in films and had come across a 1993 movie that was just rereleased for stream on Amazon, iTunes, and other streaming platforms. This movie is called Ruby In Paradise and it is about a young woman who moves to a rural town to start a new life, find her independence, her identity, and her purpose. I had finished watching this film and can confirm that this is a really well-written film that highlights the perseverance of an independent woman who does not need a man to obtain that independence. I also really loved the community of the women who help Ruby in the film. I highly recommend this film to anyone who is interested in a strong female lead in a film and a very well-written, well-shot movie! For anyone who is interested, here is a link to the trailer:
DO YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE FOR FREE IN THE "OLYMPICS" OF CINEMA MADE BY YOUNG FILMMAKERS? This is an invitation for you: come to Italy to shoot your films.

I’m glad to see a page where women are supporting women. I am excited to watch the film Birddog Nation next Monday on Film Festival Flix that tells the story of three activist women and their journeys of taking charge. This film is part of the Ashland Independent Film festival, that this year is being virtually held on the streaming platform Film Festival Flix. I have been watching the virtual festival since it started and the tickets were super easy to buy on the site and the streaming is very high-quality. I did some more exploring on Film Festival Flix and found tons of independent films covering all genres. After the Ashland Independent Film Festival, there’s no doubt I will continue to deepen my love for independent films on Film Festival Flix. Let me know what you think about Birddog Nation!
What an amazing page! I love supporting women in film! The strength on this page reminds me of a new indie film I saw recently called Empathy Inc. The film tells the story of a failed tech investor who tries to rebuild his reputation by investing in a new virtual reality start up that ends up sending him and his wife down a dark and unexpected path that is anything but virtual. I thought that the female lead, played by Kathy Searle, was a strong and refreshing moral compass in the web of lies that the plot creates. I'd highly recommend! You can stream the film on VOD if you're interested.
