GreenScreen 2012 Film Premiere

The Premiere Screening of the GreenScreen Student environmental films. An exhibit of student films to cultivate eco-conciousness. Sponsored by the Carsey Wolf Center's Environmental Media Initiative and UCSB Associated Students Coastal Fund.

NOTE: The GreenScreen student filmmakers are actively submitting their films to film competitions and local film festivals. Their final films will not be posted to the GreenScreen site until Fall 2012. Check out the trailer for sample footage from the 2012 GreenScreen films.


This documentary takes the audience through four houses with “cooperative living” in Isla Vista: Biko, Dashain, Rancho, and Sunset.  These houses foster a social community of colorful individuals who work together to be environmentally responsible.  Their magnetic personalities and alternative lifestyle have created an inspiring model for sustainable living.

Filmmakers: Arielle Sherman, Shane Cavette, Sharon Reeh, Lauren Arso & Melanie Lindall

Filmmakers: Ryan Renfrew, Andrew Cowell, Sarah Stichnote, Austin Gould & Shane Cavette

Catch of the Week 

Most people don’t know where the seafood they eat comes from. Even in Santa Barbara, which is home to thriving local fisheries, 95% of the seafood consumed is imported. Catch of the Week takes a deeper look into why consumers should pay more attention to where their seafood comes from, and support local fishermen who work hard to keep their fisheries sustainable.

Filmmakers: Ariadne Reynolds, Marisa Villareal, Patrick Saldana, Jonathan Reed & Ryan Elmore
