Calendar: DC Environmental Film Festival Events this Week (March 9-10)

Mark your calendars to check out at least one screening at the DC Environmental Film Festival, March 15-27. Two kickoff events take place this week:

There's a free pre-festival screening of BAG IT this Wednesday at 7 PM at an undisclosed location on Capitol Hill -  email for directions.  "An average guy pledges to stop using plastic bags at the grocery store. Little does he know that this deceptively simple decision will change his life completely." If you know anyone who's been grumpy about DC's bag tax, take them to see this film. Or at least show them this trailer:

This Thursday is the festival's launch party at the Warner Building, with silent auction, open bar, music, art, and dance. $20.

Stay tuned on Wednesday for our local picks from the festival lineup...or check out the schedule yourself.

And, as always, there's lots more on our calendar. Enjoy!
