This Sunday's FED will feature Jesse Ash -- one of the creative minds behind Greener Media, an award-winning, multimedia production company based in New York City. His company is driven by the idea that good storytelling can become a powerful tool to educate and inspire action. They create videos with some amazing non-profit organizations, tech startups, and Fortune 500 companies.
We are going to be fortunate enough to see a special screening of one of his short films, "Man in the Maze," which premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. It won the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Short Film Competition and has been screened at: Yale University's Environmental Film Fest, SF Food and Farm Film Fest, SF Green Film Fest, and Guth Gafa Fest (Ireland). In the coming months, it will be screened in Turkey and Australia.
