Join us for the premiere of the 2018 GreenScreen student environmental films. The evening will showcase four student-produced films focused on eco-consciousness. This year’s films are Trial by Fire, A Brief History of Waste, Trail Heads, and Our Last Trash.
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.

The event will be followed by a reception in the Michael Douglas Lobby.
Sponsored by Sony Pictures Entertainment, the Carsey-Wolf Center and the Department of Film and Media Studies.
