The Big Intent

2 days of film and ideas to challenge and expand our worldview. There were several live video feeds bringing people in from all over the planet. We connected with people like Rob Hopkins of Transition Network in the UK, Andy Bichlbaum, half of the famous “Yes Men” duo, Mike Fincken, the skipper of the Rainbow Warrior – who were in the Thames River at the time, and others.


Some local personalities and some imports from Auckland made for a lineup of presentations that covered wide ranging topics, to compliment the diverse offering of (mostly) documentary film.

Despite the weather – you can see the tent flapping in the howling winds over that weekend – it was a bright and energetic two day celebration of community and the power of people to self-organise around important issues.
