Students in the GreenScreen program work in teams to leverage their collective production skills and environmental knowledge to create short films, which then premiere at UCSB’s Pollock Theater. The goal of the program is not only to increase awareness about the environment, but to expand the ways that these issues are represented and communicated. Students will have an opportunity to work with local environmental organizations on critical issues that affect Santa Barbara County.
GreenScreen brings together students in the arts, humanities, social sciences, and sciences to engage in environmental issues through artistic production. This involves working across disciplines, artistic genres, and developing a critical approach to environmental media production.
