"The 11th Hour" is the last moment when change is possible. The film The 11th Hour, now out on DVD, explores how arrived at this moment -- how we live, how we impact the earth's ecosystems, and what we can do to change our course. It features gorgeous photography along with ongoing dialogues with experts from all over the world, including former Soviet Prime Minister Mikhail Gorbachev, renowned scientist Stephen Hawking, former head of the CIA R. James Woolsey and sustainable design experts William McDonough and Bruce Mau in addition to over 50 leading scientists, thinkers and leaders who discuss the most important issues that face our planet and people. Produced and narrated by actor Leonardo DiCaprio, The 11th Hour is "essential viewing," wrote the NY Times' Manhola Dargis, "an unnerving, surprisingly affecting documentary." The DVD is packaged with 100% certifiably renewable resources. And now, thanks to Warner Brothers and GreenCine, you can win a copy of The 11th Hour yourself if you're one of 3 lucky winners.

We here at GreenCine sometimes wish we could erase some of the films we carry and start over, but since they're DVDs and we're just being silly, better to let a visionary filmmaker imagine how this scenario might play out.

Be Kind Rewind is a one-of-a-kind comedy from the mind of writer/director Michel Gondry (The Science of Sleep, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). Jack Black stars as a loveable loser stuck in a life that's too small for his big dreams. But when he unintentionally erases all the tapes in a video store where his best friend works, he devises a plan to satisfy the store's few loyal customers by re-creating and re-filming every movie they decide to rent. Be Kind Rewind features a cast also featuring Mos Def, plus Danny Glover and Mia Farrow. The film is scheduled for a Feb 22, 2008 release. Now, thanks to the generosity of New Line Cinema and GreenCine, you can win a copy of the official soundtrack and some cool movie merchandise (items TBD), if you're one of five (5) lucky winners of GreenCine's latest contest.
