Presented in conjunction with the Cherry Blossom Festival
Films and Panel Discussion

Introduced by Gary Rahl, Senior Vice President, Booz Allen Hamilton. Remarks by Adriana Hochberg, Chief of Staff, District Department of the Environment.

Sustainable DC, the city-wide initiative to make Washington, D.C. "the greenest, healthiest and most livable city in the nation," is spotlighted in this program of short films and discussion with D.C. government officials, including Keith Anderson, Director, District Department of the Environment and Harriet Tregoning, former Director of the District's Office of Planning.
 
Introduced by filmmaker Sandy Cannon-Brown.

GREEN ROOFS IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA (USA, 2014, 5 min.) World Premiere  Keith Anderson, Director of the District Department of the Environment, is an advocate of green, or vegetated, roofs to help contain rainwater and reduce the volume of storm water runoff.  That's because runoff collects oil and grease from our roadways, nutrients from lawn fertilizers and bacteria from pet waste as it flows into our rivers and streams. Green roofs also filter air pollutants from the rainwater and save energy in buildings. Anderson explains why green roofs are especially effective in Washington, D.C., and what the Department of the Environment is doing to encourage them.  Directed by Sandy Cannon-Brown. Produced by Peter Ensign.

EARTHECHO EXPEDITION: INTO THE DEAD ZONE (USA, 2013, 10 min.) What Happens When We Build Cities? Philippe Cousteau and the EarthEcho Expeditions team journey across the Anacostia River and underground in Washington, D.C., to explore the impact of urbanization on the water cycle.  They visit the new sewer tunnels being constructed as part of D.C.'s Clean Rivers Project. Produced by EarthEcho International.

Introduced by filmmaker Tim Cone.

REBALANCING (USA, 2014, 23 min.) World Premiere  Is Capital Bikeshare, the first such bike rental program in the country, an environmental success story? Filmmaker Tim Cone, a Washington, D.C. resident, seeks to answer this question as he interviews the people who run Capital Bikeshare, as well as those who use, or don't use, its bicycles. Shot in every Ward of Washington D.C., in Arlington and in Alexandria, the film addresses how bicycling both reflects and changes our lifestyles. Its title was inspired by the challenge faced by Bikeshare employees, whose continual "rebalancing" of bicycles attempts to ensure that each Bikeshare bike station has both a supply of bikes and empty spaces for returning bikes. Directed by Tim Cone.

Panel discussion, moderated by Elliott Francis, Anchor, WAMU, with Dan Guilbeault, Policy Analyst, Office of Policy and Sustainability, District Department of the Environment; Harriet Tregoning, former Director, DC Office of Planning; Vanessa Garrison, Founder and Director, GirlTrek, and George Hawkins, General Manager, DC Water and Sewer Authority, follows screening.
