Environmental Filmfest at Embassy of Canada- reservation (with Embassy) required

Here we go with what I think is the Best DC Film Festival of the Year - the Environmental Film Festival! Wonderful films, mostly free, incredible venues and even some receptions.  What's not to like?  The Embassy of Canada has a great history with the Festival. This year's film, Lost Rivers, will guide us through the hidden river networks of London, Brescia (Italy), Montreal and Toronto, revealing forgotten networks of the past.  A discussion and reception will follow the film.

**** You must rsvp through Eventbrite to attend.  Click here for the information.  Please only rsvp with them if you are sure you can attend.  The film begins at 6 pm and there is also a screening on Tuesday, March 12.  Both screenings will sell out.  Again here is the link.  ****

We will do more of this festival, so no worries if you can't make this.  For the hardy souls, there will also be a post-Canada Meetup that night at the Arena Stage Piano Bar, an easy Metro or car ride away.  What night!

LOST RIVERS (Canada, 2012, 72 min.)

Shown as part of the Rivers Program

Washington, D.C. Premiere Once flowing through nearly every developed city in the world, rivers provided the infrastructure upon which modern metropolises were built. Why did they disappear and how? Could we see them again? In this adventurous and revelatory look into the disappearance and recent resurfacing of these historic waterways, Lost Rivers leads us down the drain into vast underground museums of urban development. Guiding us through the hidden river networks of London, Brescia (Italy), Montreal and Toronto, intrepid groups of subterranean explorers known as “drainers” reveal the buried waterways that house the secrets of each city’s past. The film also explores recent initiatives to resurface and revitalize forgotten rivers in Yonkers, N.Y. and Seoul, Korea. Written and directed by Caroline Bâcle. Produced by Katarina Soukup, Catbird Productions.

Discussion with filmmaker Katarina Soukup follows screening.

    I know the unexpected sometimes occurs, so if someone with a ticket needs to cancel last minute I would be willing to take your place.

    Can't make it and never confirmed with Canadian Embassy. I did enjoy the function at the Naval Heritage Center.
    Thanks to all that made it possible.

    Hi- I just signed up for the last ticket through Art House. But when I go to the festival website, it says registration is closed. Will I still be able to get in? Thanks!

      Hi Shira. As of now, no. Sorry. The tickets from the Embassy are gone but I am monitoring to see if they put any more out. We'll do other fun stuff so stay tuned.
