The second movie screened nationwide was called “The 11th Hour,” which featured interviews with scientists, environmental experts and even government personalities. This movie was produced by Hollywood Film star Leonardo di Caprio.

Planet Earth was the third documentary film viewed. It focused on the natural world, its beauty and how experts dedicated their lives to preserving it.

The 4th documentary was called “Warnings from the wild.” It was a report on the consequences the people will all eventually face if they continue on a path of neglect for the environment.

All these four films tell us that it is WE who are responsible for our surroundings and our lives in this world!

Over 100,000 public high school students benefited from this very important activity nationwide. At SM City Baguio, there were 600 students from Baguio City National High School, 400 students from Pines City National High School, 50 students from Irisan National High School, 200 students from the Girl Scout of the Philippines Baguio Chapter and around 100 walk-in/mallgoers watched the said documentaries where the admission was free.

SM Supermalls, through its Environment Committee, hopes that all the students who viewed the movies of the SM Green Film Festival had learned how important it is for each one of us to do our share in providing a sustainable environment.

The SM Green Film Festival is but one of many events all leading up to Earth Hour and Earth Day celebrations on April 2010 in all SM Supermalls nationwide. (PR)
