Houston Green Films

The Houston Green Film Series was launched in 2010 by a coalition of non-profit, grassroots, environmental organizations. The purpose of this series is to bring awareness to the environmental crisis through the visual arts by presenting films with an environmental focus to the Houston community.

The series includes the annual screening of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival on Tour, two nights of short, inspiring, environmental films, in January; an intro to telling your environmental story with film; and
Wild About Houston: A Green Film Festival featuring short, local, environmental films.
