NZAGRC sponsors Best Science Communication Film at Reel Earth 2012

The NZAGRC is proud to be sponsoring the "Best Science Communication" award in the 2012 Reel Earth Film Festival.  The Centre believes that good, clear communication of science is pivotal in today's fast paced world.  It is especially important to promote research being conducted in New Zealand and on the NZAGRC's doorstep in the Manawatu.

A highlight of the festival will be the screening of Sky Whisperers Ranginnui at 6pm on Friday 18 May.  This fascinating environmental film features NZAGRC Principal Investigator, Dr David Whitehead.  The movie "brings together farmers and fishermen who observe the skies as they work, navigators who follow the stars, astronomers who watch/listen to the sky, the moon, the stars, and the scientists and business people who work to develop clean ways of harnessing energy for industry, cleaning up polluted atmosphere and skies." http://www.wickcandle.co.nz/sky_whisperers_ranginui.html

The Reel Earth Environmental Film Festival runs from Friday 11 May to Saturday 19 May 2012 at Downtown Cinemas, Palmerston North, New Zealand.
