AU hosts the DC Environmental Film Festival this week!

SOC's environmental film series joins forces this week with the D.C. Environmental Film Festival for a series of weeklong events highlighting the city's best environmental filmmaking – both professional and amateur.

The festivities kick off tomorrow with the premiere of Shooting in the Wild, a film based on Professor Chris Palmer's exposé book about environmental film production. The event, hosted by National Geographic and Alexandra Costeau, is part of "An Evening with Chris Palmer" that includes a Q&A with Prof. Palmer and a screening of the winners from this years Eco-Comedy Video Competition. The event kicks off at 7 PM in Wechsler Theater.

The series continues through Saturday with additional events, including screenings from the Student Environmental Short Film Festival and a panel about how to take action after watching environmental films.

This is an exciting, big Washington event being held right on campus. Take the time to visit the Center for Environmental Filmmaking's website and see if you can fit one of their screenings into your schedule.
