Earth Optimism at IMAS: Film Festival

Lights, camera, take sustainable action!
Join us this Saturday on January 23 at 6:00 PM for the Earth Optimism at IMAS: Film Festival!
Tune in on Facebook for the premiere of five teen-created short videos. Earth Optimism at IMAS was a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and nine Affiliate partners to document environmental changes as a result of the pandemic, and to empower teens to share their observations and ideas for positive action in a post-pandemic world.
In the last 3 months, IMAS has worked with local teens to realize their vision by producing 2-minute videos that reflected their hopes and dreams about sustainability.
Sponsored by the Smithsonian Affiliations Women’s Committee.
