Light Food and Refreshments
Coffee, tea, locally made baked goods, popcorn, and more delicious snacks will be available for purchase at the concessions stand inside the theater!
Opportunities to Meet Local Organizations
We have a list of organizations lined up to table in the foyer of the theater before the film screening, so be sure to arrive early to chat with them and learn about their work in Indiana county!
Panel and Group Discussion
We are thrilled to welcome Triple Divide filmmakers Josh Pribanic and Melissa Troutman to our March screening. Josh and Melissa will both participate in the intermission panel and group discussion after the film. They will also be able answer any questions our audience may have!
In addition to Melissa Troutman and Josh Pribanic, other panelists to appear are:
- Cindy Rogers of the Evergreen Conservancy
- Sherene Hess of the League of Women Voters, to speak about the LWV’s work and studies related to the Marcellus Shale.
- IUP Graduate student Gabrielle Lehigh, who conducted ethnographic research in Diamondville among families effected by fracking.
- G Smith or Brian Cope of the Coalition for a Healthy County
Our panelists will further explain gas fracturing during intermission, and introduce Indiana residents to the organizations and programs currently working to monitor Marcellus Shale development in Indiana. After the film discussion will be opened up to the audience on this and many other issues, such as Indiana residents’ own experiences with the effects gas fracturing, ways to address those environmental and health effects, the policies that protect and allow gas companies to use unsafe drilling methods, and more.
The Center will also announce some of its upcoming projects, including a petition to limit fracking in Indiana county’s conservation zones, and our new plans for starting a CSA for Indiana.
We look forward to seeing you there! Thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters!
