SCREEN & BE GREEN
Today is day two of the 3-day Green Lifestyle Film Festival. "This festival is a celebration of film makers who dedicate their talents, income and energy to examining what sustainability really means: from how we birth our young, to how we raise children, the construction and design of homes in which we live, to how we deal with illness and how all this is reflected in how we feed ourselves, to how we treat others in the animal kingdom all in the name of 'the perfect steak' the 'fashionable coat or accessories' or for entertainment, and its impact on all spheres of life on Earth." There are screenings going on all day at the James Bridges Theater (UCLA) in Westwood. Tickets are available for cash only on site at the box office, and there's a free outdoor area set up with live food demos, exhibitors and live entertainment that's there until 8 p.m.
