suz_SFOFF_opt.jpgSuzanne Harle conceived the idea of Green Planet Films while attending a wildlife film festival in 2002. She registered for the conference to explore how she could become a wildlife filmmaker, only to discover a wealth of award-winning films are produced, but many which will never be seen outside of the film festival circuit. Instead of becoming another filmmaker with a lack of distribution opportunities, she came away from the festival with another mission -- to promote these types of films instead-- and founded Green Planet Films in 2003 as a non profit distributor of nature and environmental films from around the globe.  By creating an organization SHE wanted to work for, Suzanne puts to use her years of experience as a media freelancer: spanning a wide range of skills from graphic design to writing, to photography and video editing, storyboarding, producing, publicity and promotions, to public relations, web analytics, partnering, research and networking. @greenplanetfilm
