Houston Green Films & Festivals

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. Free tickets on Eventbrite.

The series includes the annual screening of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival on Tour, two nights of short, inspiring, environmental films, in January; and Wild About Houston: A Green Film Festival featuring short, local, environmental videos in October.

Regular screenings of the Houston Green Film Series are held on the third Wednesday of each month at the Media Center at Rice University, unless otherwise noted. In addition to showing an environmental film, a panel of experts is invited to lead a proactive discussion with the audience about the topic at hand.  

Visit our Eventbrite page to reserve tickets. Networking and exhibit tables are in the lobby starting at 6:30 p.m. Show starts at 7:00. Panel discussion starts at end of film and lasts no later than 8:45 p.m. FREE but donations kindly requested.
