Green film festival

Go green Thursday through March 26 at the Environmental Film Festival in Washington. The 14th annual festival includes showings of 100 nature-related films - from documentaries, features and archival films to animated and kids' flicks - from 23 countries. Filmgoers can catch screenings at area museums, theaters, libraries, universities and embassies, and can hear discussions with 46 of the filmmakers and other environmental experts before and after some of the showings.

This year, films will include Carroll Ballard's Duma, the story of a boy and his pet cheetah; Adrian Cowell's The Jungle Beat, his latest film on the Amazon rain forest; and Darwin's Nightmare, Hubert Sauper's documentary on evolution.

Most screenings are free. Some require a small fee and registration. For a complete schedule with film descriptions, times and venues, call 202-342-2564 or visit
