The Green Festival's mission and vision is to inspire and empower consumers, communities and businesses to work green, play green and live green.
Saillant is on a journey to unite the world into a sustainable 'Green Planet.' Saillant's, Angel Light Pictures mission is to focus on sustainability and to bring a new environmental prospective to the art of green filmmaking. They are working to create a socially just and environmentally sustainable society, while giving our audience a green perspective.
The motion picture industry is such a large user of electricity for its sound stage shooting and diesel fuel for its location filming," said Antonio Saillant. "I believe my plans for the future development for a movie studio in the upper westside utilizing solar panel installation will be my contribution to improve the neighborhood and help offset the carbon footprint." In addition to the environmental benefits, advocates highlight solar power's potential to create local work and jobs on the Washington Heights Area of New York City.
We live in a knowledge - based economy and education is our greatest natural resource.
Saillant is focused on the future and the building of Planet GreenFest, which is The World's Only Green Short Film Festival. With the help of future filmmakers, we can change the old techniques of filmmaking by creating films that are ecologically conscious without compromising the quality of the films we make. We are committed and dedicated to discovering filmmakers that will combine their talents and creative vision by "Thinking and Going Green". Not only will this be environmentally and socially beneficial, we can make a tremendous impact in our economy. Planet Greenfest has combined it's knowledge of the energy business with the entertainment industry with the hope of contributing to a more sustainable world.
