Oscillation Transia Film Festival Hits the Road with GLP's Award-Winning Tierra del Fuego Film
The Oscillation Transia Film Festival is a non-profit organization, exploring the intersection of solar energy application and environmental awareness through the art of film. Their mobile film festival, which is touring through Fall 2018, is designed to bring the public together to experience and discuss environmental awareness through low-impact outdoor cinema.
With the mission to self-sustainably travel America while sharing innovative films, the Oscillation Transia Film Festival is currently on its 2018 solar-powered tour around the United States' most unique and uncharted locations.
In 2016, Founder Jess Giacobbe envisioned a new kind of film festival, one that is entirely self-contained and autonomous in nature. To help realize this vision, Festival Engineer Austin Krause designed and constructed a solar generator system that, while traveling down the road, harnesses and stores enough energy from the sun to set up professional grade film screenings just about anywhere. The event is in its second year.
The 2018 Oscillation Transia Film Festival features GLP Films' award-winning film, "The Man at the End of the World." The film highlights the beautiful and mysterious landscape of Tierra del Fuego, Chile through the lens of one of its original pioneers, Don Germán. He and his wife live on the scenic shores of Lago Fagnano, a location ripe for tourism, but on the brink of major government-sponsored development.
