A curated program of documentary films designed to raise awareness of important issues affecting the planet, the Environmental Film Series explores a wide array of "eco" and "green" topics, including water quality, sustainability, natural resource preservation, animal protection, ecosystems, pesticide use, pollution, public health issues, citizen activism, and the adverse effects of industrialized agricultural practices. Since Newport Beach is home to a wealth of environmental groups and natural wonders (from the beaches to the bays to the bird estuaries), the Newport Beach Film Festival serves as the ideal venue to present environmental films.
