Environmental films throughout Washington

Films from around the world will put the spotlight on environmental issues during the 10th annual Environmental Film Festival in Washington. Today through March 24, the festival will feature more than 100 documentary, feature, animated, archival and children's films. Most screenings include discussions with prize-winning filmmakers or environmental experts. Major themes of the festival include the movement for sustainable, eco-friendly industrial design; the impact of toxic substances; the human struggle for survival in hostile environments; and the natural world as envisioned by artists and animators.

The films will be shown at more than 40 venues, including museums, embassies, libraries and universities. Almost all screenings are free. For a film brochure, call 202-342-2564 or visit the Web site at www.dcenvironmentalfilm fest.org.
