Green film night hits the screen in Tucson

July 30, 2012 by  

On Wednesday, August 15, the Wild and Scenic Film Festival will be held at The Loft Cinema located at 3233 E. Speedway Road in Tucson, Arizona. This event kicks off at 6:30 pm. Currently, there are discount tickets available for this fascinating festival at Tucson Audubon Nature Shop, Antigone Books, and the Summit Hut.

This year’s festival will feature a number of films designed to provide people with a “sense of place”, to promote global awareness of our ecosystem. The event is designed to motivate, educate, and stimulate the public to make a difference when it comes to our ecosystem. One of this year’s featured films, an acclaimed documentary entitled “Bag It”, involves plastic bags and how they are making their way into the landfill sites and the ocean, causing damage to wildlife and the environment. Many of the residents of Tucson, who have seen this film, are now encouraging the City of Tucson to seek solutions that will reduce the use of plastic bags. This evening event is being presented by the ‘Coalition’. Other films and presentations will take place during this special night.

Poster printing and flyer printing may have been used to promote this environmentally-friendly event to residents of Tucson and the surrounding region. Admission is $8 per person if purchased in advance and $10 per person if purchased at the door. Tickets can also be purchased online. For more information about this festival, please visit the City of Tucson’s website or call 520-388-9925.
