Queen's University Sustainability Week 2018 has come!

Join us for an evening of engaging conversation with Shalini Kantayya, an award-winning filmmaker with a focus on storytelling that offers solutions to our most pressing environmental issues.

Kantayya’s production company 7th Empire Media works to create a culture of human rights and sustainability through imaginative media. She most recently directed Breakthrough for National Geographic: a series profiling trailblazing scientists who will transform our future (Executive Produced by Ron Howard). Her latest film is Catching the Sun, a feature documentary that explores the race for the clean energy future through the stories of solar entrepreneurs in the U.S. and China. The film premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival and was named a New York Times Critics’ Pick. It’s also part of American Film Showcase, and will be shown at U.S. embassies and diplomatic missions around the world. The film won the Best Feature award at the San Francisco Green Film Festival, and was released globally on Netflix on Earth Day 2016 with Executive Producer Leonardo DiCaprio. Catching the Sun has been nominated by the Environmental Media Association for the 2016 EMA Award for Best Documentary and has been translated into 35 languages.
