Success and reach of my short films

My short film on light pollution was selected to be screened at the Environmental Film Festival at Yale and the San Francisco Green Film Festival. The film’s reach has been nothing short of amazing - featured on Nat Geo, screened at film festivals highlighting environmental and social issues of our time. So many policymakers, educators, observatories, scout clubs, non profit organizations including the National Park Service have reached out to me to use the film for education and outreach. Hearing from common people changing their lighting choices after watching the film makes me feel very optimistic. To have a special liking for Astronomy and feeling sad that light pollution is ruining it is something. But, to have the world turn back, listen and call for action on the issue is something I never imagined.
