The Deep Water Initiative designs and hosts numerous film series screenings with a variety of educational based institutions, including universities, environmental fellowships/programs, institutions of faith, and local film forums. We believe that film can and should serve as a dynamic educational tool as well as a powerful agent of change. We support the screening of high-quality film productions that address the complexity of ecological sustainability within local, indigenous, and faith-based communities living within a post-modern world.

RELIGION AND ECOLOGY FILM SCREENINGS 

The Deep Water Initiative is inspired by the ecological importance of water as an all-pervasive element that sustains life on this planet.  The metaphysical importance of water as both a cleanser and regenerator has been upheld by many cultures throughout the world, and is celebrated within the creation myths of different religious and spiritual traditions.  The Deep Water Initiative has been particularly influenced by the significance of water as demonstrated within the Five Books of Moses.
