Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital
Screens go green with films that focus on wildlife (pandas!), climate change and more. Plus: “Game of Thrones” in concert and orchids in bloom
This month, panda lovers can view their furry obsessions not only at the National Zoo, but also on screen. Disneynature’s documentary “Born in China” (a still, above) premieres March 19 at this fest, the largest of its kind in the U.S. For the 25th anniversary, venues across town show more than 150 films (most free) covering topics from endangered wildlife to oceans and agriculture. Other highlights: “Before the Flood,” Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio’s exploration of climate change, and “Seasons,” extraordinary footage of wild animals in the forests of Europe.
