Yes, folks will get that too this Saturday at the Historic Ritz Theater in downtown Brunswick.
But organizers of the Green Screen Environmental Film Festival say there is a better reason to attend this totally free event. It features several environmentally-conscious and locally-produced short films, as well as an international documentary produced by Oscar-nominated director Josh Fox (Gasland) on the challenges of global warming.
The Green Screen Environmental Film Festival takes places from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Ritz, 1530 Newcastle St., hosted by Keep Golden Isles Beautiful, Green Scene of Coastal Georgia, and the University of Georgia Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant. The featured presentation will be the 1 p.m. showing of Fox’s acclaimed film, “How To Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change.”
Also showing will be the locally-produced short films “Tackling Trash in the Golden Isles,” “Coastal Georgia’s Green Infrastructure and Stormwater Management,” and “Ripple Effect.” Additionally, the program “Science in America” with Neil deGrasse Tyson will be shown. There will be a 50/50 drawing and the first 100 people through the door will receive a free environmentally-friendly swag bag. Admission is free, however, organizers ask that those planning to attend sign up in advance at: www.greenscenega.org.
