KCET Earth Focus Environmental Film Festival (co-sponsored by LENS)

Open to the public

The second annual Earth Focus Environmental Film Festival will take place Sat., April 21 from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Laemmle’s Monica Film Center in Santa Monica (1332 2nd St., Santa Monica, CA. 90401) in partnership with Laemmle’s Theatres. Open to the public, the event kicks off with a screening of environmental shorts from UCLA’s Laboratory for Environmental Narrative Strategies (LENS) along with winning entries in the IoES 2016 Green Shorts competition, followed by four acclaimed films, and closing with a screening of two back-to-back episodes of KCET and Link TV’s “Earth Focus,” the longest running environmental news magazine on U.S. television. The screening will premiere two episodes from the new season, exploring how environmental changes are forcing all living creatures to adapt in order to survive. The series premieres later this month, created in partnership with the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
