Green Screen

Check out these great green film festivals!

First, right in our hometown, GreenFest Philly is holding a Green Film Festival as part of their annual street festival. The festival will be held on September 13, 2009 on 2nd and South streets in Philadelphia. Submissions are still being accepted.

Green filmmakers in the New York Tri-State region also have the opportunity to participate in a green film series curated by Slightly Overexposed Productions' Stacey Burgay, who we met at DIY Days Philly. Burgay is looking for fiction and non-fiction films that either "focus on issues that reflect the public and the environment" or were produced using the Code of Best Practices for Sustainable Filmmaking, which we profiled in June. Films will be screened at the Oval Film Center (12 Stuyvesant Oval, New York, NY) on August 24, September 10, and September 17.

The Going Green Film Festival shows just how far along green film has come. Offering entry categories for films created using "green guidelines", films about environmental issues and films featuring hybrid or alternative transportation, the festival honors the commitment of green filmmakers to lessen their impact on the environment. The festival will be held in March 2010; submissions will be accepted until January 15, 2010. (h/t The Thin Green Line)
