In September of 2018, GreenFlix was launched in South Delta with this classic and foundational film that questions common assumptions about the benefits of international trade and increasing GDP, then shows examples of how localized economies and community self-sufficiency can lead us back to a globally sustainable future.

This unusual film was sold out for festival showings in Vancouver, Whistler, and Squamish. With breathtaking cinematography, The Radicals follows four snowboarders and surfers driven to become social and environmental stewards through their connection with the environments in which they play.
By enjoying and appreciating their natural surroundings, these awakened athletes introduce us to some of the worlds most dedicated activists and game-changing wilderness initiatives that can actually change the world. The Radicals inspires us to shift our perspective, rise above the challenges of modern society and dig into our roots to create radical waves of change, while still enjoying the thrill of nature, gravity, and a sense of real purpose.
