Event Description
The Rational Middle Film Series is a World Affairs Council of America program sponsored by Shell Oil. WorldDenver was selected to bring the film screening and discussion series to Denver with the aim of jump-starting the discussion and inciting action. The Rational Middle utilizes the power of film with compelling experts and resources to address important issues such as: access to energy, food and clean water for a growing global population, economic efficiency, security, and the threat of the effects of climate change in action. We'll show three short films and engage the audience with an exciting panel discussion!

What's at Stake

We use a lot of energy. The problem is that it affects our world every day and many of the costs are not found in the price you pay at the pump or on your monthly bill. In "What's at Stake" we'll take a look at how energy is changing the world around us and what we stand to face if we don’t start changing our habits.

Shale Gas: 201

“Natural Gas 201” discusses the ways natural gas can contribute to the recovery of the economy from the Great Recession, as well as taking a look at the relationship between renewables and gas now and in the future.

The Great Transition

"The Great Transition" leads to a wider discussion about the energy future and offers a look at some of the discussions we need to have and decisions that need to be made in order to get to the cleaner energy future.
