Free Earth Day Green Film Fest at Suffolk University
The Foundation for a Green Future will present a free Earth Day Green Film Festival at Suffolk University, in downtown Boston, from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on April 22. The four films will be shown in the Function Room of Suffolk University Law School, and discussions will follow each screening.
The festival includes the prize-winning documentaries Dreamland and Future of Hope from Iceland, the Canadian film H2Oil about the oil sands in Alberta and Hip Hop Rev, a lighter film about the work of a religious leader who motivates inner-city youth to think green. “These films have the capacity to be life-transforming,” says Karen Weber, executive director of Foundation for a Green Future, Inc. “They allow us to take in the visual impact of what our planet is experiencing and, hopefully, motivate us to start making a difference.”
The Earth Day Green Film Festival is co-sponsored by Boston Youth Environmental Network. Light refreshments will be served and visitors are welcome for one or all of the films.
