Gainesville's Environmental Film and Arts Festival Focuses on Becoming More "Green"
GAINESVILLE- An event aimed at celebrating nature and teaching the community how to become more "green" wrapped up Sunday at the Gainesville Depot Center. The fifth annual, "Environmental Film and Arts Festival," was put together by volunteers and featured food, art, films, and music from local and international aritsts. The festival raised awareness about environmental concerns and boosted support for local businesses and organizations working toward a healthier future.
Cinema Verde Director Trish Riley said, "The truth can be painful but we need to know that and that is why we're doing this. People need to understand what pollution is going to do to us and how, you know, the fact, that we can't live with dirty water and dirty air so we got to fix those things."
