Albuquerque Film & Media Experience (AFME) is June 3-9 in New Mexico. (http://abqfilmfestival.com)

This inaugural film festival, favored by Robert Redford, have invited the Pollinator Support Movement (PSM) collective to present "BeeSWeek 2013: Scientific and Community Panel Forums" on campus at University of New Mexico. The mission of PSM is to save and restore bees and the food supply chain. BeeSWeek at UNM equates to A dozen+ expert-professionals, an award-winning journalist-as-moderator, a 200 seat state-of-the-art auditorium at the University of New Mexico, and two days of "to be historic" conversation about bees and our North American food supply chain.

Description: The BeeSWeek panel forum events will focus on solutions-based framework designed to protect the North American food supply. Our dependence on honey bees as primary pollinators in most of our crops is a troubling reality. As this pollinator is failing, solutions are needed quickly. Four (4) panel discussions with expert-professionals and two (2) presentations by keynote speakers will communicate the current North American bees situation, and will discuss the design and implementation of a more robust and sustainable industrial pollination solution set.
