Despite US and international law prohibiting the use of torture the US has used torture, often euphemistically called “enhanced interrogation techniques,” in its so-called “War on Terror”. Despite the law, despite documented proof that such efforts produce inadmissable evidence, false information and false confessions, and despite the blowback of such efforts, the US continues to shield the lawbreakers--both those who committed and those who authorized torture--by “Looking forward, not backward,” and there is evidence that such techniques continue to be used and falsely justified.
Extended solitary confinement is recognized as torture. It is used extensively in U.S. prisons. For more about the connection between the U.S. prison-industrial complex and torture read this short article by T3 member, Sara Olson.
Through TV shows like “24” and Hollywood films like the commercially successful “Zero Dark Thirty” and the new documentary “Manhunt” the US’s use of torture is presented as viable, and even necessary to our country’s security. Unfortunately, a majority of the under-informed and misinformed public now thinks that torture is necessary and useful.
Tackling Torture at the Top, through this contest, hopes to produce entertaining and informative videos that contradict this harmful and inhumane view, educate the public, raise questions about the direction of our foreign policy and our use of the military, and by so doing, give the public the awareness and courage to rein in our country’s out of control security apparatus.

Project Native seeks submissions for the 5th Annual Environmental Film Festival. For the past four years Project Native has hosted a successful environmental film festival in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. Our environmental film festival showcases documentaries selected for their artistry and illumination of global issues and actions that impact our future. Each year we select a variety of films that are both educational and entertaining to give people a feeling that environmental solutions are within our grasp and do-‐able.
Films are selected for their support of the mission of Project Native to encourage the stewardship of the planet while serving to educate, inspire, enrage and engage viewers. In addition, we seek to show films that have not been widely distributed in the area.
The festival is unique in that it is the only film festival presented free of charge to the community. By making it a free event, we hope to share information about current environmental issue to everyone in our community.
