Channel your inner Ebert this winter by helping screen and select films for the Green Lens Environmental Film Festival. Green Lens is seeking volunteers to judge entries for best narrative short, documentary short, and student film.

To participate in the judging process, send an application inquiry and a short biography to niugreenlens@gmail.com. Community members, students and Northern Illinois University faculty and staff with an interest in film or the environment are welcome to apply. Judges must complete screenings and evaluations for all of the films in their categories by Jan. 24.

Green Lens will host free public screenings of the official selections and winning films at NIU and downtown DeKalb during the 2014 festival, which runs Feb. 24 through Feb. 27. In addition to the film screenings, organizers are planning to host environmental art exhibits, an upcycling fashion show, green craft events, and children’s story times during the festival.

According to festival director Melissa Burlingame, “Green Lens is a great way for people to learn more about the environment and to find ideas for the big and small changes they can make to have a positive impact on our community and our world.”

Green Lens is sponsored by NIU Outreach and the Institute for the Study of the Environment, Sustainability & Energy. To learn more about the festival or the judging process, go to www.niu.edu/greenlens or contact Melissa Burlingame at mburlingame@niu.edu.
