Missed all the great environmental films of 2009 — or can't wait to watch the new illuminating eco-docs of 2010 before they hit the big screen (or at least smaller community screenings)? Then I hope you live in or around Washington, D.C., so you can enjoy the 18th annual Environmental Film Festival this month!

From March 16–28, green-minded film buffs will be able to pick from 155 films, showing at 56 venues. The list of films include some favorites we’ve talked about and reviewed here, like The Age of Stupid, Dirt! and Garbage Dreams.

The focus for this year’s festival is food, so eco-foodies will especially love what’s showing. Some of the films I’d love to see are Lunch — which looks specifically at school food programs — and HomeGrown – which spotlights an urban family farm near me in Pasadena, Calif.

All 155 films have a green message — and all were also filmed using sustainable filmmaking guidelines. And perhaps best of all for filmgoers, most of the screenings are free!
