DIVE! by Jeremy Seifert is now available on DVD and will be on Netflix from July 19.

In the process, they salvage thousands of dollars worth of good, edible food – resulting in an inspiring journey that is equal parts entertainment, guerilla journalism and call to action about food waste in America. There are some bonus goodies on the new DVD edition including short vignettes featuring each of the dumpster bros. Click here to order DVD at 30% off. The Festival’s 2011 Green Tenacity Award winner BANANAS!* by Fredrik Gerrten is now available on DVD here. In this suspenseful courtroom drama, Fredrik Gertten, Sweden’s pre-eminent documentarian and investigative journalist, courageously examines a highly controversial legal case pitting a dozen Nicaraguan plantation workers against Dole Food Corporation. GOOD FORTUNE by Landon Van Soest is now available on Netflix to watch instantly. Jackson, Silva, and Okech fight against the odds as they confront massive international development projects threatening to destroy their homes and livelihoods in rural Kenya. Though the West spends trillions of dollars in charitable aid, many of our best intentions have actually undermined the communities they aimed to benefit.
