Green Festival Speakers
Rebecca Harrell Tickell dedicates herself to the advancement of women and the environment. She is the Co-Director and Producer of the documentary 'The Big Fix' which is an 'Official Selection' of the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. She has spent the last year documenting the impacts and root cause of the BP oil spill. While investigating the spill she became ill and was left with permanent damage from exposure to the oil and dispersant in the atmosphere. She produced the 2008 Sundance Award winning documentary FUEL, and is currently in production on two other documentaries. She co-directs the nonprofit I’ll Be the One Organization, and is the author of 'Hot, Rich & Green', a book about redefining feminism and the role of women in the environmental movement. As a child, she starred in the Orion (now MGM)’s Christmas Classic movie, Prancer. Tickell and her husband, Josh Tickell (director of ‘FUEL’ and ‘The Big Fix’) live in Venice, California with their pug Mr. Brown, their Veggie Van, and the world’s first algae gasoline powered car.
