Irving's 2013 Eco-Film Fest

Earth Day is deeply rooted in a history of education. The first Earth Day event was in 1970, held as a “national teach-in on the environment.” It was groundbreaking in that it brought together people with different beliefs and backgrounds to fight for a single cause. 

To expand knowledge and to once again gather together in common interests, Irving is hosting its second annual Eco-Film Fest. This free, three-day event features screenings at six venues with almost 40 documentaries and children's films to provide event-goers an opportunity to see films that focus on issues such as food, water, natural resources and everyday people with a vision of making a difference.
