The 18th Annual Environmental Film Festival will be screening 155 films from over 31 countries in various theaters around Washington, D.C. from March 16 to March 28. This year's theme involves food and the environment.
Films range from documentaries about the coming water shortgage in Azerbaijan to a newly restored 35mm print of Margot Benacerraf's 1959 "tone poem" Araya, which portrays the daily existence of three families living in in northeastern Venezuela.
The EFF will also host lectures and Q&A's with the filmmakers and other guests.
