About Gasland














A finalist for an Academy Award for Best Documentary, GASLAND is a gripping, timely, and necessary film about the largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history. Conceived of, directed, narrated and filmed by Josh Fox, GASLAND premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and won six major awards. The long-awaited sequel, GASLAND 2, debuted at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. GASLAND 2 picked up where GASLAND left off, with Fox's continued investigation into fracking, its side effects, and the industry's responses to the anti-fracking movement.

This year, we're gathering earlier than we usually do to welcome our keynote speaker, Josh Fox, Oscar-nominated director of Gasland! Josh's important, provocative film about fracking provides a powerful context for increasing concern that Indiana lawmakers will seek to seriously weaken the ability of Indiana's government to protect your air and water.

  • Learn about current environmental issues in our state
  • Network with green-minded Hoosiers
  • Build momentum for the upcoming legislative session
  • Hear from one of America's most compelling environmental filmmakers, Josh Fox!
