Coming Up: Local Environmental Film Festival ‘Green Screen’ in March

Print

If you missed the award-winning film Gasland, about hydraulic fracturing, not to worry, you can see it– for free–as part of a newly announced local film festival.

From March 3rd through 12th, the Village and Town of Mamaroneck and the Village of Larchmont will host Green Screen, a free film festival of eight environment-themed movies, for grownups and kids.

Each screening will be followed with a featured speaker and a Q & A session on the topic.

The featured speaker for the Gasland screening scheduled for Sunday, March 11th will be Paul Gallay, President of Riverkeeper.

Riverkeeper is  one of the local activist groups fighting to ban hydraulic fracturing, or fracking–the controversial process of extracting natural gas–in New York State and the reservoirs that supply New Yorkers. (See our previous coverage.)
