2017 Environmental Film Festival: 25 Years of Films for the Planet
Dec 31, 2016 08:23PM
The 2017 Environmental Film Festival will present 150+ films at some 50 venues across the city and in nearby Maryland and Virginia—and the majority of film programs are free. Films will travel the globe, illuminating vital environmental issues and challenges and capturing earth’s splendor. A tribute to the majestic Colorado River; a call to action to address the plastic pollution in our oceans; celebrating the magnificent natural beauty and biological diversity of Colombia; protecting a spectacular and biologically significant coral reef off the coast of Mozambique; efforts to keep rivers undammed in the Buddhist nation of Bhutan; exploring the impact of noise on our lives; toxic whales; Istanbul’s cats; and the moral dimensions of raising animals for food are among the topics to be examined in films next March.
Most screenings will be followed by a discussion with filmmakers, environmental experts, and cultural leaders.
The complete festival schedule will be available on their website, DCEFF.org, in February
