Going Green!

In 2009, Films on the Green was going… green! For its second year running, the popular free outdoor French film festival featured in June movies about the environment and the beauty of the natural world, as we seek to tackle the challenges of global warming and environmental degradation.

In July, Films on the Green continued its free outdoor screenings with lighter fare, three comedies, in keeping with the summer spirit.
