Green films will go red this year at the fourth annual Cinema Verde Environmental Film Festival.
The festival director’s Trish Riley said this year the festival concludes on Valentine’s Day, and that’s an opportunity to focus not only on issues involved with sustainability but also an environmentally focused life.
Cinema Verde, an education-based environmental art and film festival held will be held on Feb. 9 to Feb. 14 at the Zuzu Jolie restaurant in downtown Gainesville, Fla.
It reminds people to “lead an authentic existence that give you the opportunity for happiness,” Riley said.
The theme for this year’s festival is love for the planet and a sustainable life, Riley said.
She said the films will cover a variety of issues involving sustainability, including sustainable politics and government. Unlike the majority of the featured films, which focus on the environment, “Happy” and “Radio Love” will focus more on leading a sustainable, environmentally friendly life.
