Policy: Award-winning Dutch filmmaker – Marijn Poels: “The Uncertainty Has Settled”
A young, left-wing filmmaker returns to Europe from working in the developing world, only to find farmers are growing wind farms, not potatoes, and no one wants to answer his questions on climate science or policy. He discusses his odyssey. His film is winner of Best Documentary: LA, Berlin, Paris
Friends of Science Society is also hosting a public screening of Marijn Poels film “The Uncertainty Has Settled” for one night only in Calgary (May 14th) and Edmonton (May 17th).

Our annual event coming up on May 15th at the Red and White Club in Calgary from 6 – 9pm costs us more than we make – we have always used it as a platform to share our scientific and economic policy messages with the public. Corporate sponsorship can help us to break even. Our big expenses are the facility rental, catering, speaker costs and advertising.
