A PASSION FOR PASSIVE HOUSE FILM FESTIVAL
VIP Meet the Filmmakers Reception
7.15pm and 9.15pm
The Roxie Theater, SF
Passive House California (PHCA) is proud to screen two documentaries that chronicle the rise of the Passive House movement in the United States.
We will screen ‘Passive Passion’ by Charlie Hoxie and ‘Passive House Comes Home’ from the creators of the award winning film ‘The Power of Community’ (2006) at the Arthur Morgan Institute for Community Solutions.
PASSIVE PASSION, by Charlie Hoxie
Screen time: 21 minutes, Rated: NR
In Passive Passion, we meet American builders hoping to open eyes with ambitious projects, including the first Passive House apartment building in the United States, as well as the European experts that helped launch the idea decades ago and continue to improve upon it today.
PASSIVE HOUSE COMES HOME, by Faith Morgan
Screen time: 45 minutes, Rated: NR
Passive House Comes Home takes us through the beginning of the Passive House movement in America’s super-insulated houses of the 1970s. Although abandoned here, people in Germany carried the movement forward and today there are 25,000 such buildings in Europe. The film explains the environmental challenge and opportunity represented by buildings and why deep energy retrofits that reduce energy consumption and CO2 emission for our 113 million existing homes, should be a national priority.
