Top 10 environmental documentaries of 2009 - Inspiring and shocking
Whole Foods was a sponsor for "Heart & Soil" at the film festival in Nashville in 2008. It remains a popular choice among communities who want to inspire more people to participate in local agriculture. I would have entered it in your selection of films had I known about it. www.heartandsoilfilm.com
We're working to finish up the YERT feature film (Your Environmental Road Trip). We call it an "environmental anti-depressant." Keep an eye out for it next year. In the meantime you can see the trailer and 50 short films about the project at http://www.yert.com .
Please, next time you are posting a list, please post a list. I don't have time to click through each slide to see what the title of the movie is. A choice would be nice. Thanks. Keep up the awesome work!
FRESH should also be on this list- it is the kind of environmental film that this country really needs right now. While the film clearly lays out the problems with the industrial agricultural system, it also offers solutions that provide hope to inspire individuals to take action.

Why isn't Dirt! on this list?! It's a movie that highlights one of the most basic environmental necessities and how exactly it impacts our everyday lives. I was apprehensive and not that exited to learn about dirt, but I saw it at Sundance and was more than impressed.
DIRT! will be on next year's list - very inciteful, an overview from the heart as well as biosphere...a MUST see film, everyone, dig in & enjoy...
No Impact Man was my favorite...but i"ve heard that the Cove is good (disturbing) as well. Does it feel like a large number of environmental films have emerged in the first year of Obama? (or was it more a reaction to the last year of Bush?)
