From Feb. 24 to March 2, activists, filmmakers, artists and students will showcase environmental issues and solutions from all over the world in the third annual Cinema Verde Environmental Film and Arts Festival.

Unlike festivals of the past, Cinema Verde has consolidated all of its events this year to a single location, making it easier for attendees to locate and enjoy the many different components the festival has to offer. Over the 10-day span of Cinema Verde, the Villa East event space on Main Street will be the home and headquarters of about 25 environmental films, a variety of environmentally themed art, and several eco-friendly organizations.

Tickets for each film will be $7 for general admission and $5 for students, children and seniors.
