KCET's Earth Focus Environmental Film Festival 2018
On Saturday, April 21, 2018 KCET celebrated the second annual Earth Focus Environmental Film Festival, along with actor and filmmaker Raphael Sbarge ("Once Upon a Time," "Longmire"), actor Patrick Fabian ("Better Call Saul"), and actress Sharon Lawrence ("NYPD Blue," "Queen Sugar," "The Ranch") and actress Kim Delaney ("Chicago Fire," "The Oath," "Army Wives," "NYPD Blue") who acted as presenters for the full day festival at Santa Monica’s Laemmle Monica Film Center from 9:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
A full day of environmentally-themed films open to the public, with many of the films free of charge, kicked off with an environmental shorts screening from UCLA's Laboratory for Environmental Narrative Strategies (LENS) program followed by four acclaimed films ("March of the Penguins 2: The Next Step," "Evolution of Organic," "The Last Animals and Jane") and closed with a screening of two all-new episodes of KCET and Link TV’s "Earth Focus," the longest running environmental news magazine on U.S. television. Each film was introduced by a celebrity host and followed by a Q&A panel. More information about the screenings and the Q&A sessions that followed can be found at KCET.org/green.
