Green Your Movie-Going: Local Film Festivals

Local film festival In honor of the 83rd annual Oscars ceremony this Sunday, this week's tips are about how to green your cinematic experiences. 

Tip #1: Attend a local film festival.

Cannes and Sundance sound fabulous, but chances are there's a film festival closer to you that won't have you leaving such a large carbon footprint. Local gatherings offer the chance to see smaller budget, indie films that might not have made it to the cineplex. They also promote the works of local filmmakers and are great places to connect with regional artists and activists. Find film fests anywhere from San Francisco to rural Vermont and everywhere in between

Tip #2: Find a greener movie theater. 

Tip #3: See a movie with a mission.

Tell us: What's your favorite local film festival?
