The Interior Museum is pleased to return as a co-presenter for the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital's Summer Encore Series reprising selections from the March 2021 Festival.

Visit the festival portal to view the Conservation Shorts I: Iconic Wildlife program: a compilation of four film shorts highlighting the stories of at-risk wildlife populations and the human activities that help and hurt their conservation. From bison to ocelot to wolves and other predators, see how conservationists are keeping track of endangered wildlife and navigating conflicting public and private interests to give these species the space to thrive. 

This virtual program package includes four films by some of the nation's leading independent filmmakers, plus a post-screening recorded discussion moderated by Mara Webster with Filipe DeAndrade, Camilla Fox, Ben Masters, Benjamin Drummond, Sara Joy Steele, and Joe Flannery.

FREE with reservations >> Full program description and free tickets available via the festival site.

Registration opens June 17, 2021, with the package available to stream anytime from Thursday, July 8, through Sunday, July 11, 2021.
