Budding environmentalist at home? Check out the reindeer herders of Finland, the dolphins of Baritaria Bay, bee hives in Detroit and everything you can imagine in between – many for FREE courtesy of the DC Environmental Film Festival!
The Environmental Film Festival in Washington, DC has been an annual showcase of environmentally themed films since 1993. The films celebrate the Earth and inspire understanding and stewardship of the environment. Over 100 films are presented from film makers around the world.
Unfortunately, this year the coronavirus has stopped public showings of films in theaters. However, understanding the importance of sharing their message with the public, the festival has made many of the films available to stream for free until March 31 from the comfort of home.
Get some popcorn, snuggle under a blanket and tune in. Most are under 15 minutes, so great for short attendtion spans. For example March of the Newts is just over four minutes long. The majority are free, though some will direct you to Amazon or Venmo to pay a small fee, typically $2 to $3. It’s a great opportunity to supplement a science lesson or just see the world beyond our own front yards.
