One-day green film screening becomes a week-long eco-fest
DeKALB – People of all ages are invited to celebrate Earth Week at the third annual Green Lens Environmental Film Festival from April 20 to 25. The festival offers film screenings, outdoor adventures, kids’ crafts, DIY presentations and a Green Night Out in downtown DeKalb to help people have fun while learning about the environment.
Green Lens is presented by Northern Illinois University’s Institute for the Study of the Environment, Sustainability, and Energy (ESE) and the Division of Outreach, Engagement, and Information Technologies. A grant from the DeKalb County Community Foundation allowed the festival to expand from a one-day film screening to a six-day event.
“The switch to a film competition allows us to showcase more local and regional talent,” said Melissa Burlingame, program coordinator for ESE. “Community members will have a chance to see films with new voices and perspectives that they can’t see anywhere else.”
