An Inconvenient Truth—times 125
If the film An Inconvenient Truth can cause the world to take notice, what could 125 environmental films do for the planet? Recognized as the largest festival of its kind in the country, the seventh annual Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival will feature independent films about urban homesteading in Pasadena, outdoor adventures in pristine areas of the world, renewable-energy projects among the Navajo and Hopi tribes and more. Think reality TV-meets-Planet Earth at the Sundance Film Festival. Filmmakers and activists also will discuss the issues and places that inspired them to create such films, and organizers hope films like Addicted to Plastic, Burning the Future: Coal in America and I Love Trash will inspire people into activism. There also will be workshops, children’s events, art shows, wine tasting and an awards ceremony. Don’t forget to carpool.
