Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

Imaginary Amie already told you about all the NFFTY goings-on this weekend, but if you just can’t get enough youth cinema, there’s one more film event you might want to check out this weekend: the Environmental Justice in Action Network Film Festival. The clunky name covers a very cool program sponsored by Reel Grrls and a bunch of other local organizations. High school students spend a year learning media production skills and studying environmental justice issues. At the end of the program, they get one week to use those skills to make short films about environmental justice topics like healthy food and safe cosmetics.

On April 27, there will be a screening of eight of these short films, with presentations by the young filmmakers themselves. FREE tickets are available at the Intiman box office, and doors open at 6 p.m.  There will be FREE sammies from Marination Station before the show. Who knows? You might discover the next Sofia Coppola.
