Yeah! Bag It has been shortlisted for the PUMA Creative Impact Award, and the whole team is going to Berlin for the announcement of the finalist! The finalist will be selected from international submissions as “the documentary deemed to have made the most social impact” this year.
Bag It‘s selection was recently featured on the Huffington Post UK, where director Suzan Beraza declared the goal “to keep this campaign going. It’s a big world out there, and a lot of people still to hopefully inspire to change their habits!”
We are so grateful for everyone’s widespread appreciation of the message of the film. Bag It has been welcomed at 1000 schools, universities and corporations across the world, with hopefully many more to come!
“Going to Berlin is like a huge team field trip,” says Producer Michelle Hill. “We are excited for Emily Utter (Bag It Town Coordinator based in San Francisco) to join us. She is so fired up about bag-free initiatives and has really used the film as a tool to up the ante on the issues.”
We’d like to send a shout out to PUMA for their new dissolving plastic bags. See here.
As individuals and as organizations, we are faced with some serious challenges today such as ongoing conflict, climate change, loss of biodiversity. None of these issues will solve themselves without intervention. We, at PUMA, have chosen to intervene through film because it is the most powerful medium to reach mass audiences and influence opinion formers and will contribute to leaving a better world for generations to come.
Jochen Zeitz, Chairman of PUMA
