- will be moderated by local sailing expert and video producer Gary Jobson.
The film fest is produced by Elvia Thompson of Annapolis Green and Paul Murphy, according to a release.
“Our goal in bringing the Annapolis area this series of mini-film fests is to bring attention to environmental issues,” Thompson said in a release. “We also want people to be moved to take action.”
There also will be a screening of The Story of Stuff, “an amusing but eye-opening perspective on the environmental and social aspects of our throw-away society,” according to the release.
