The premiere of the 2013 GreenScreen student environmental films showcased five student-produced films focused on eco-conciousness: Where the Wonder Went, Can Fairies, I Am the 40%, Tar Wars, and The Cave.
GreenScreen is a hands-on, project-based environmental media production program where students work in teams to leverage their collective production skills and environmental knowledge. 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.

This event is sponsored by the Carsey-Wolf Center’s Environmental Media Initiative, the Department of Film and Media Studies, and UCSB Associated Students Coastal Fund.
