This Weekend's Pick: Seattle Environmental Film Festival

Looking for something good to do this weekend? [Hey, aren't we all?  -- Ed.]  Why not check out the Seattle Environmental Film Festival?

The folks at Hazel Wolf Environmental Film Network have been putting together a great environmental film festival out at Sleeping Lady in Leavenworth for the past six years. I went about three years ago, and really enjoyed it.  (Although it was definitely more dominated by filmmakers than activists -- perhaps not surprising given the remote location and expense of staying at Sleeping Lady.)  This year, it finally occurred to them to bring the festival to Seattle as well. 

Here's the scoop:

When: Friday, Jan. 21st from 6 - 10pm and Saturday, Jan. 22nd from 10am - Midnight
Where: The Mountaineers, 300 Third Ave W, Seattle, WA 98119
Tickets: $15 for a single session, $25 for the Full Day Saturday, and $40 for the Full Festival. Mountaineers member, student and low income rates are also available.
Box Office: 206-284-6310; Tickets may also be purchased at the door. 

Explore the magic and power of utilizing film to spread environmental messages and encourage environmental activism. Be inspired by documentaries from the Northwest and around the world, covering a wide array of topics such as agriculture, consumerism, activism and global warming. Join one of the two free (!) workshops about cost-effective production of environmental media or just simply mingle with people who share your thoughts and concerns. Whether you are a student or an educator, a businessperson or a scientist, an activist or simply a concerned citizen, SEFF aims to entertain and inspire.
